Remembered Today:

Richard Meinertzhagen

Recommended Posts

I know a bit about Richard Meinertzhagen, who seems to be one of the most fasctinating characters to come out of the war, but I would like to learn more.

Are there any recommendations from forum members on a good biography? I took a look at Amazon, but am unsure as most seem to get very bad reviews.

I'd like to try and cut a bit through the myth to the man, if possible.

Whose that bloke Lonnie, never seen him before!!!!

I too find Meinertzhagen a fascinating character, if you do get a bio of him I would be interested in your opinion of the man and the book.

I found that my local German library (?) actually has a copy of Mark Cocker's 'Richard Meinertzhagen - Soldier, Scientist and Spy,' so I'm going to pick it up next week. The reviews of this book seem good, so I'm hopeful.

I was also looking at 'Warrior - The legend of Colonel Richard Meinertzhagen' by Peter Hathaway Capstick, but the reviews were terrible--so I think I'll give that one a pass.
