Critch The Memoirs Of Brigadier - General A. C. Critchley

£9.99

Product description

A criticism often levelled at the twentieth century is that it has produced relatively few outstanding personalities. But there can be no doubt that one of them is Brigadier-General A. C. Critchley - affectionately and universally known as "Critch". Brigadier-General at twenty-seven, in charge of R.F.C and R.A.F. initial training in the two world wars, responsible for the introduction of greyhound racing, as we know it today, to this country, political stormy petrel, sportsman of international reputation, Director-General of B.O.A.C - these are the highlights of a life of tremendously varied and exciting enterprises. Once described as someone who has leaped straight out of the pages of Dumas, and labelled by a wit as "a man who never lost a friend - or an enemy," Critch has writing an autobiography which reveals that his drive and zest for living remain unquenched - even after the sudden loss of his sight as the age of sixty-three. Swashbuckler, hurricane on two legs - whatever he is named: Critch is a phenomenon of our day, and his book is as full and rewarding as his own remarkable life.
