Rate this:
A recently discovered treasure trove of letters from and about Fritz Peters -- one of the greatest Canadian war heroes -- and his family gives new insight into his life experience, what he was thinking and what made him tick. Loveable and eccentric, his military accomplishments earned him three major honours for valour in both the First and Second World Wars. Peters' life ranges around the globe, encompassing boyhood on both coasts of Canada, naval service at the romantic China station, tense battles with German U-boats in both wars, a mysterious career in the spy world, and culminating as leader of a modern-day Charge of the Light Brigade inside an Algerian port with Vichy French guns lined up against him from every direction.
