"Gilles Tre-Hardy is a man with an incredible story to tell. .On his eighteenth birthday, Gilles enlisted in the French army and two months later was captured by the Germans. Twice. he escaped, the second time walking almost 1,000 miles back to .France". At the end of the war, Tre-Hardy made a career in the French African colonies, becoming in time "Chief Administrator and later chief Game Warden in [the] French Soudan, Ivory Coast, Niger and [the] Central African Republic, he was in the right place at the right time. Game was plentiful. There was plenty of time to hunt. Trophy quality was excellent." Tre-Hardy acted as PH for visiting notables, including all the visiting presidents of France. Late in his career Hardy was governor of the Marquesas, and in retirement devoted time to assisting Girard Pasanisi's Tanganyika Wildlife Safaris. Tre-Hardy's manuscript was translated from French by Bernard Laudon. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Whenever he is hunting, Tre-Hardy gives his all. He knows the rule. When hunting dangerous game it is important to be alone, to make your mind up quickly and to move your body even more so. Endurance, a sense of the game, instinct, ability. Put them together and results pile up. There are more photos of 100 pound trophy elephants in this book than in most others.
