Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a Scottish physician and writer known around the world for his stories about detective Sherlock Holmes, which all but created the literary field of crime fiction and made the name Sherlock Holmes synonymous with detectives. Aside from the Sherlock Holmes stories, he was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction.
Memories of a Desert Rat This short, fascinating, and very personal account of one man's war experiences, tells the story of what it was like to live on the front line during WW2. As the author explains, for the soldier on the ground, it was often impossible to understand the 'big picture' as to what was happening. Adrian Jucker was wounded many times, in an experience that included El Alamein and Tobruk - and his changing role from Desert Rat to Paratrooper - right up to and including the Normandy landings. The narrative demonstrates the ability of the British soldier during WW2 to adapt to the demands of the moment - and the bravery of those who did, and especially those who did not, survive. It is simply and sparingly told, with little embellishment - and reflects a stoicism that was typical of the wartime generation. The humour of the author shines through every page.
