More by John Spencer
His account of the campaigns in which he fought, from Talavera until Toulouse (Talavera, Busaco, Albuera, Vittoria, Orthez, Toulouse, as well as the sieges of Badajoz and Cuidad Rodrigo and the abortive campaign to New Orleans), are tightly edited by the Author to omit details and accounts to which he was not an eye-witness. He wrote his notes at the time and, except for one volume going missing whilst he was in hospital, they offered a contemporaneous source of insight into the daily lives of the rank and file. His descriptions of the actions and battles he engaged in are intelligent, vivid and full of interesting details.
An excellent memoir, warmly recommended.

Rick Daly must learn to succeed at love as well as business but he has chosen one hell of a proving field – the Philippines. He is a tenth man, one of those individuals who, through no apparent fault of their own, attract trouble and the blind wrath of authority. While he finds and loses his ideal woman, his few remaining relatives, who live in the U.S., are steamrollered by a collapsed superannuation fund and an avaricious bank. The Neo Con financial culture effectively murders his uncle. His fate draws Rick into contact with an ex Nazi and also Islamic rebels in Mindanao. Imprisonment in the Philippines, Australia and finally the USA, following the events of September 11, causes Rick to turn to crime. His accomplishment at his latest endeavour results in a personal catharsis. Sex, money and power are not enough. Rick discovers necessary spiritual values and the real meaning of the swastika.
The accidental adventures of Rick Daly take the reader into a sea of cultural flashpoints that pointedly reflect on his or her values at the same time as exposing the huge cracks in the world’s current political and social order. In addition to the vast numbers of expatriate Filipinos this novel may appeal to the millions who suspect that humanity is collectively heading along the primrose path.
