Dealer Notes
Captain Shepherd's book will bring welcome cheer. For here we find something of the old spirit, the enthusiasm impatiently fuming at the delays which hinder the youthful ambition to get to whatever fighting is going on: the (slightly racy!) humour which can laugh at dangers and discomforts of active service, and that extraordinary quality which for two hundred and fifty years has made young British officers all over the world devote themselves to so many differing races in so many varied countries.
