Roy Oram's life was an astonishing journey that took him from Victorian London, through the battlefields of World War I, to post-Revolution Russia, India under the British Raj, China, Mandate Palestine, then Egypt and Europe during the Second World War, and finally back to post-war Britain. Having qualified as a doctor during the First World War, Oram started his career on the battlefield, and stayed with the Royal Army Medical Corps until he retired as a Brigadier. Through amusing observations and anecdotes, Oram gives a highly personal insider's account of life as one of the millions of individuals who chose a life in service during the rise and demise of the British Empire. Constantly on the move and facing new challenges, he brings alive those turbulent decades, from the 1890s to the 1950s, that shaped our own world.
