If you want to know how to live beyond the age of 99 with joy in your heart, then read this book. Share in the wisdom, stories, and adventures of a man living through the 20th century, who fought the Nazis first in Africa and then in Europe, never being able to return home in three years.

Born shortly after the First World War when peace was thought to be guaranteed, his exploits throughout his life rival any of today’s adventurers. This is also a story of a romance told in letters, the trials of a working-class family, and how friendships support us through the ups and downs of life. It’s a story of a seemingly ordinary man, the writer’s father, who did amazing things throughout his life.

His history is all of our history. Why? Because the 20th Century with both its fantastic achievements and terrible destructive forces has shaped our today. How do we look back to the past to help us prepare for our unpredictable tomorrow? Answering that question is vital to us all. What can we learn from the past and his life to help our futures?

It was 1971, her dad suggested Beth Hindle should be a lawyer. The Headteacher of her newly reformed comprehensive school replied that only boys from his school studied law. A productive and successful career in law, in public service including a judicial appointment, did follow eventually. The book is an expression of the writer’s massive gratitude to her father for being the perfect inspirational and challenging role model and never taking anything for granted.
