Description

This is the true story of a boy born of a wealthy aristocratic women and who's father was believed to be a Russian soldier. Born in Volksdeutchsland, which later became Poland by decree of Lord Curzon in 1924, the author and main character of the book, led a fascinating if not dangerous life. Dragged around Europe and educated by the catholic church, he eventually escaped only to end up at 14 years of age working for the occupying German army as a mineworker in a forced labour camp. During which time he lost four fingers on his left hand. After many attempts to escape he managed eventually to get to the UK where he was recruited into British Intelligence and sent back to mainland Eurpope to spy on the Germans. In return for these services at the end of hostilities, Mirko was made a British subject and allowed to work in Great Britain After the war he met his beloved wife Merce, a Catalan and over the next 40 years had many working roles in Britain and a life in Catalunya on the Costa Brava, in which time he made many friends and had many experiences which are re-told in this fascinating true story. Mirko today lives out his retirement with his companion Violetta in a listed cottage on the Costa Brava surrounded by artworks by Miro; Dahli and many other local artists, but that's another story! Enjoy this remakable mans own true story written in his own hand, in a language he taught himself, without schooling or assistance. You'll be captivated and probably moved to tears!
