Over the course of a truly remarkable life John Deverill has had a front row seat for some of the most important events in the 20th century. This first volume covers the years 1922 to 1953 - from a vivid portrayal of life in an English boarding school between the wars to gripping accounts of seeking and destroying German U-boats in the North Atlantic. After the war Deverill attended the famous MECAS (Middle East Centre for Arab Studies) in Lebanon, worked for the Red Cross, where he witnessed the plight of Palestinian refugees in the late 1940s, and went on to become the Commander of the Arab Legion Air Force.
John Deverill was born in 1922 to a British father and an Italian mother. Following the outbreak of war, at the age of 18, he joined the RAF. He was stationed in Iceland, the Middle East, Italy and Greece, flying dozens of bomber missions. After demobilisation Deverill studied Arabic in Lebanon before working for the Red Cross at refugee camps in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. He went on to become the Commander of the Arab Legion Air Force. Deverill later went to Russia as the Air Attache to the British Embassy in Moscow at the height of the Cold War, and then to Aden as a Senior Intelligence Officer.
