John Waddell comments on the events of daily life with a dry humour. He loves his garden and is passionate about his native Scotland, but deplores the blight of modern town planning and the litter in the streets. His comments on human nature - not excluding his own foibles - show a wryly comic insight.

About the author

Members of the Caledonian Society to which John Waddell belongs know him to be a very keen gardener, with a garden the envy of all. All his poems about gardening are deliciously funny, but the poem Gairden Walk, which goes from disaster to disaster, is a real gem. While so many of his poems on a wide range of human experience express delicate and wry humour, his personal and deeper poems are especially sensitive and moving.

This is a really a remarkable book about World War 2. So many battlegrounds—first in the Shetlands (a preparation rather than a battle), then the desert in North Africa, then D-Day itself into France, and finally Norway! As a first-hand account by someone directly involved in these battles, especially the D-day invasion, this work is a very valuable record of history.
