In his autobiography, Danny Marks takes us back to the days when Britannia ruled the waves. The formidable Mediterranean Fleet was stationed in Malta and, at that time, exercised considerable infl uence on the international scene. He describes his teenage years in Malta, where he was born, when the island became the most bombed place on earth. He shares his memories of that time when, a mere fourteen days short of starvation and surrender, salvation arrived in the form of the highly protected convoy which fi nally reached its shores. He goes on to recount his experiences of 29 years service in the Royal Navy, a tale packed with incident and observation, in turn amusing and serious. He tells the reader that a warship and a sailor's uniform acted as a magnet for girls seeking a good time and of how easily he could have joined the ranks of those with 'a girl in every port'! The difficult conditions endured on board ships in his days were, he affirms, more than compensated by his adventures in hundreds of ports and towns, his visits to countless cities, lakes, rivers and mountain ranges, set in their historical and cultural contexts, across fi ve continents. As for his life, he would, he tells us, happily live it as it was all over again.
