Memoirs of a not too serious Hussar
MEMOIRS OF A NOT TOO SERIOUS HUSSAR by Dennis Gardner Middleton
Six battles, cruel conditions, capture and survival. The story of Desert Rat Dennis Middleton who left civvy street behind to face the horrors of Tobruk, enduring siege and capture.
A compelling war autobiography, sometimes brutally honest, which also evokes the remarkable humour and comradeship vital for survival in a harsh and hostile wartime Middle East.
It is set in the Western Desert, a battlefront which, like the 8th Army itself, is lesser known territory.
It brings the reader much action, many enjoyable and graphic anecdotes, and features marvellous characters.
‘It’s a book many might read non-stop, start to finish’.
‘A compelling war autobiography with remarkable humour and touches of satire reminiscent of one of Leslie Thomas’s best selling Virgin Soldiers’.
The detached and uncomplicated diary-writing style sweeps the reader along.
