Originally published: 2018
'Dashing for the Post', the first selection of letters from Patrick Leigh Fermor (known to all as 'Paddy'), delighted critics and public alike. Here now is a further selection offering equal pleasure. Paddy's exuberant letters exude a zest characteristic of the man. They contain glimpses of the great and the good: a chance conversation with the Foreign Secretary, Anthony Eden, when Paddy opens the wrong door, or a glass of ouzo under the pine trees with Harold Macmillan. They describe encounters with such varied figures as Jackie Onassis, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Oswald Mosley and Peter Mandelson; while also relating adventures with the humble: a 'pick-nick' with the stonemasons at Kardamyli, or a drunken celebration in the Cretan mountains with his old comrades from the resistance, most of them simple shepherds and goatherds.

Book:Abducting a general, the Kreipe Operation and SOE in Crete:2015
Author: Fermor, Patrick Leigh
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: John Murray
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: One of the greatest feats in Patrick Leigh Fermor's remarkable life was the kidnapping of General Kreipe, the German commander in Crete, on 26 April 1944. He and Captain Billy Moss hatched a daring plan to abduct the general, while ensuring that no reprisals were taken against the Cretan population. Dressed as German military police, they stopped and took control of Kreipe's car, drove through twenty-two German checkpoints, then succeeded in hiding from the German army before finally being picked up on a beach in the south of the island and transported to safety in Egypt on 14 May. This book is Leigh Fermor's own account of the kidnap.

Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: John Murray
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2016 Patrick Leigh Fermor was hailed as the greatest travel writer of his generation. His letters are often entertaining and sometimes instructive. They exhibit many of his most endearing characteristics: his zest for life, his unending curiosity, his keen sense of place, his lyrical descriptive powers, his love of words, his fluency in a remarkable range of languages, his lack of self-importance, his boyish exuberance, and his sense of fun. They draw on his wide reading, and his unflagging enthusiasm for learning.
