Square One, 1991, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Fifty years ago Major Mike Tice was instrumental in the first shot being fired against the Japanese... It is typical of the man to be in the forefront of the action — both in war and in peace. After an Army career that took him back to Malaya and the Far East his retirement was anything but retiring… Always a sportsman, he left behind top amateur boxing to take up motor racing in the 50s and 60s, tearing round the circuit at Goodwood, Silverstone and Oulton Park purely for ‘the fun of it’. The taking part was all that mattered then — not in the supercharged extravagances of today’s motor racing world, but in ordinary cars bought by the man in the street. In the early 70s Mike Tice was a founder member of a cricket team christened The Mercenaries, their aims continuing to be playing the game for the love of it, building a camaraderie that still takes them to matches all over the country and the Channel Isles — their escapades both on and off the field make entertaining reading. This is an autobiography of a character whose life has never been boring — and whose love of life shines through the pages of his book.”
