The book is a reflection on Sam, his character traits, sense of humour, moral and professional courage and the enigma that made up his personality. It presents a unique insight to his thinking and his style of dealing with a spectrum of situations from the sublime to the mundane. Above all, it portrays his humility, his honesty and his respect for men in uniform, regardless of rank. It is anecdotal and an easy read as it walks you through his life from childhood to the pinnacle of glory.
