About this product
- DescriptionIn a light-hearted and fascinating sequel to her acclaimed wartime autobiography, One Woman's War, Eileen Younghusband charts her ninety-three years, from the 1920s to the present day, through the truly extraordinary men she has met. Not a straightforward autobiography, Men I Have Kwn is a tribute to the variety, the skills and the different characters of the huge range of people she has come across during a long life enriched by travel and adventure but also coloured by more than its fair share of tragedy. Giving a unique, intimate and personal perspective on some of the most influential men of the twentieth century, as well as some characters hitherto unkwn, Eileen writes about Winston Churchill, Rex Harrison, Dylan Thomas, members of NASA, musicians at Glyndebourne, actors, caterers, soldiers, politicians, and even Idi Amin! This book is an extraordinary testament to a woman with an unbeatable appetite for life and - of course - to the men she has kwn.
