Stanley Portal Hyatt

"...The Diary of a Soldier of Fortune by Stanley Portal Hyatt. In this book I read the life of a headstrong and highly opinionated young Englishman whose brief thirty-seven years were as rich in discovery, bold action and defeat as anyone I had ever read of before....Even though by the time of his death he had written seventeen books, mostly novels, his literary bud had yet to bloom in the opinion of some, and today all of his books are long out of print."
