Two young Scotsmen become war correspondents at a time when ‘amateurs’ took on dangerous careers, believing they ‘ought to do something’ to make the world a better place. A credulous time, when the young thought their self-sacrifice could solve every problem, of innocence rushing to experience, often breeding disenchantment, of idealism facing reality. First love ends tragically for Alastair in civil war Spain. He meets Carl during the world war that follows, and the two men continue together through personal disaster and involvement with those who helped, hindered and inspired the struggle for the state of Israel, independence in Africa; against the horrors of apartheid; the fate of Indo China. A remarkable book, spanning a few decades, about boys becoming men, and about men becoming wise.
