Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Macpherson looks back on his life from his 90th year, starting with his childhood in Scotland and India in the 1920s and '30s and ending with his role in corporate management during the British coal-mining strikes of the 1980s. More than half of the book covers Macpherson's WWII years as a commando, prisoner of war, and resistance fighter in the Middle East, Italy, and France. Macpherson's breathtaking exploits are told with characteristic understatement by narrator Nick McArdle. His voice is strong and his accent cultured, if not particularly Scottish, and he pronounces European place names accurately. The audio production is spare and without embellishment.
