During the period of 1945-1949, the late author served as an army officer in India and a number of Middle-East countries. He saw the miseries inflicted on hundreds of thousands of people as a result of bad decisions made by politicians in Westminster and Washington, DC. He felt compelled to recount his experiences that took place during a seminal period.

But to write such an account posed a number of problems. He decided to write a number of short sketches of what life was like for a young officer serving in India and the Middle East during those turbulent times. To give the picture some background, he included his earlier training period in England that led to a commission in the Indian Army.
