9781491879092: The Speedicut Papers: Book 2 (1848-1857): Love & Other Blood Sports

In Book 2 of The Speedicut Papers, readers are taken on a headlong dash through long forgot-ten wars starting with the First Schleswig War of 1848, inadvertently started by Speedicut, and ending with the Anglo-Persian War of 1857, in whose origins he also played a major role. In between, Speedicut has uncomfortably close encounters with a well-known Hungarian Count in Berlin and La Dame aux Camellias in Paris, travels to the United States where he is hunted by Pinkerton agents, nearly wrecks the Great Exhibition, contrives that Lord Cardigan catches the pox, is captured by the Russians at the outset of the Crimean War and, on his re-lease, spends time with the notorious Cockney grande horizon tale, Cora Pearl. ..

About the Author :

After serving time at Oxford University and the RMA Sandhurst, Christopher Joll spent his formative years as an officer in The Life Guards. On leaving the Army, Joll worked first in investment banking, but the boredom of City life led him to switch careers and become an arms salesman. After ten years of dealing with tin pot dictators in far away countries, he moved into real estate public relations where he had to deal with dictators of an altogether different type. His experiences in the Army and afterwards, involving the famous and the infamous, are related in his yet to be published memoires, Anecdotal Evidence, an account which promises to cause considerable consternation in certain quarters. From his earliest days Joll has written articles, features, short stories and reportage. One such piece of writing led to an early brush with notoriety when an article he had penned anonymously in 1974 for a political journal ended up as front page national news and resulted in a Ministerial inquiry. Most recently, Joll has written the text for Uniquely British: A Year in the Life of the Household Cavalry, an illustrated account of the Household Cavalry from the Royal Wedding to the Diamond Jubilee. Since leaving the Army in 1975, Joll has also been involved in devising and managing major charity fund-raising events. Most recently, he has focused on devising, writing and directing events for military charities. These include the Household Cavalry Pageant, the Royal Hospital Chelsea Pageant, the acclaimed British Military Tournament, an annual show that he writes and directs, and in June 2012, a military tattoo in Hyde Park for the Diamond Jubilee. When not writing, directing or lifting the lid on the cess pits of British history, Joll is an adviser on State ceremonial to Independent Television News.
