This biography tells the story of Ernest James Strover – Puck as he was known to his contemporaries – who served as a soldier in British India and both World Wars, was a pioneer of air combat on the Western Front, escaped from a prisoner-of -war camp and finally was a pastor in Holy Orders.

It recounts unique events in a life of uncompromising venture, sustained by a strong faith which, in later years, he was able to share with his parishioners. Written by his second son, John Strover, with a Foreword by Sir Peter Tapsell, M.P, it is a revealing story of the British Empire and the two World Wars, but also much more – Strover sheds light, through perceptive and authentic personal experience, on the intertwined and complex relationship between serving ones God and serving ones country.

It is illuminating reading for all interested in an insiders view of the British Colonial service at the end of Empire.
