About this title:

Synopsis: Lt.-Col. Paul Mayer comes from a long line of career military men. His own outstanding career has been spent as an infantry officer in the Canadian Army. In the course of his term of service and later, as a peacekeeping officer, he flirted with disaster a number of times. In this sometimes witty, sometimes sober account, we are treated to Mayer`s adventures at school ("Young Love is a Worm or a Frog or Whatever Pleases My Lady"), a wildly unpredictable visit with his Aunt Helene, a matter of some lost helicopters, a royal tiger hunt in Cambodia, and a few unforgettable visits with Ho Chi Minh. Retired now, Mayer looks back, reflects, and sums up. The reader is the richer for his efforts.

About the Author: Born of a French mother and British military father, Lt.-Col Paul Mayer spent most of his adult life as an infantry officer in the Canadian Army. Educated in France, England, and Canada, he is a graduate of the Canadian Staff College and a qualified paratrooper. He served as an infantry company commander all through the campaign in Europe from June 1944 until May 1945. Then, in 1953, he was sent off to war in Korea. There followed a series of lengthy and often difficult --and in two cases, dangerous--peacekeeping assignments in Southeast Asia: Cambodia, North and South Vietnam (1959-61), the Congo (1963-64), and finally the Dominican Republic (1965-66). Once his military service ended in 1968, Mayer embarked on a new a career as a personnel specialist with the Asian Development Bank in Manila for three years, followed by seven years with the World Bank in Washington D.C. Lt.-Col. Mayer currently resides with his wife in Ottawa, Ontario.
