New York: St. Martins Press, 1998. Seventh Edition. Hardcover in New Dust Jacket. 320pp, illus. Peter Hathaway Capstick, one of the greatest adventure writers, passed away in 1996. At the time of his death, Capstick was putting the finishing touches on Warrior, a stirring and vivid biography of the famous British colonial officer Richard Meinertzhagen, whose exploits earned him fame and notoriety as one of the most daring ruthless men to ever serve during the glory days of the British Empire. Capstick, with his trademark wit, brings alive the man and his times, tracking him from his youth in England, through his first posting in India, and then on to British East Africa, where he fought in the fierce colonial wars of the turn of the century and against the Germans in WWI. The final addition to the best-selling author Peter Capstick library, Warrior will be treasured for years to come. NEW. Item #442
