Richard Graham read modern languages at Jesus College, Cambridge before being commissioned into The Middlesex Regiment (Duke of Cambridge’s Own), known throughout the British Army as The Diehards. His choice of regiment was hugely influenced by Christopher Man who was then Colonel of the Regiment, just nineteen years after his release from captivity in Japan. The author’s thirty years as an infantry soldier included command on active service of Cockney soldiers like those whose character and spirit are threads that run through this book. A Man of Kent by birth and upbringing, he has lived in Guernsey since his retirement as a soldier.
