Following regular service with the Royal Engineers in North Africa, Charlie Radford joined the SAS and carried out sabotage operations in France and Italy where, after a failed mission, he ended up living and fighting with the Partisans. This memoir is unusual in being written by a soldier of the ranks rather than an officer and describes his service life as he rose from an Apprentice Sapper in 1938 to senior NCO during post-war assignments in Kenya and Somaliland.
