   schema:description ""Desmond FitzGerald's memoir covers his eventful life of many parts from his birth in Kenya during the First World War to shortly before his death at the beginning of the next millennium. Some of his earliest memories are of his childhood in Africa and he maintained a lifelong fascination with the continent, despite interludes in Britain, Europe and the Middle East. FitzGerald relates stories of his childhood, his war service (including time as an Italian prisoner of war), his time working for the Secret Intelligence Service - MI6 - and his later life." "Many Parts includes valuable anecdotes about FitzGerald's service in the Second World War and his life as part of the expatriate community in Kenya. It contains vivid descriptions of life as a Briton in mid twentieth-century Africa and the societies that he encountered. Of interest to both historians and general readers, Many Parts is an eloquent history of one man's journey through a changing world."--Jacket."@en ;
