9780099445463: To War with Whitaker

When World War II broke out, Dan Ranfurly was dispatched to the Middle East with his faithful valet, Whitaker. These are the diaries of his young wife, Hermione, who, defying the War Office, raced off in hot pursuit of her husband. When Dan was taken prisoner, Hermione vowed never to return home until they were reunited. For six years, travelling alone from Cape Town to Palestine, and meeting such charismatic characters as Churchill, Eisenhower, and a parrot called Coco on the way, she kept her promise.

Review:

An extraordinary story. No review can do justice to the writing (Robert Rhodes-James Sunday Express)

These absolutely spiffing diaries offer a madcap, aristocratic window behind the lines of war ( Daily Mail)

Few diaries from any era could be as fascinating . . . This is truly compulsive reading ( Woman and Home)
