In this autobiography, Rowland Marshall, who traveled the globe visiting countries most people only dream about, tells of his adventures in time of peace and war. He describes his early childhood and a career in the Merchant Service, including the seamy side, and his misfortunes with Malaria. The war year of 1942 saw him aboard an ill-fated ship loaded with food, medical supplies and high explosives, bound for the beleaguered Isle of Malta, whose people were starving. Facing almost certain death, he lived to fight on, unlike his shipmates, most of whom perished. By September 1943 he was back in the action, ferrying troops from Alexandria for the invasion of Italy.

The author hopes his recounting will make you laugh or shed a tear, as he did while writing his story. He often looks back at the strange twists and turns that occurred throughout his life, to say, "Luck has been my... More > constant companion."< Less
