Now I Grow Oranges covers the exploits of one man, Sebastian Wykes, from childhood through schooling to conscription. From Dunkirk to Sandhurst and S.O.E. From France to North Africa, from Berlin to Buenos Aires, indeed all the major events featured are real. The Graff Spee incident, the Vatican sponsored Nazi Rat Lines, atrocities like that of Oradour-sur-Glane to his one-on-one combat encounters. Training with the Commandos, parachute drops into France, fishing boats into Algeria. The events are real and well documented, however because of the O.S.A and the hundred-year embargo, it is for you to decide if Sebastian Wyke is. Lose yourself in this detailed, painstakingly researched, passionately written account of a soldier's experiences in World War II as he takes you on a journey through some of the events that aren't so well documented, and you may not find elsewhere.
