Based on cartoonist David Low's parody of the old-fashioned British professional soldier, set in his ways and unable to adapt to the brutality of modern war. This story follows the career of Clive Candy, at first an idealistic, young Boer War hero, then a brigadier general, serving honorably in World War I. Finally, by World War II, he has become a bald, overweight, querulous old man, angry that his age and military experience are held in contempt, and bewildered that his lifelong code of gentlemanly conduct has become an anachronism in a world threatened by a monster like Hitler

The parallel is the goal of a small group of Nazis, survivors of a U-boat that has been spotted and sunk in Hudson Bay, deep in Canadian waters.

The life and death of Colonel Blimp by Michael Powell( Book )
7 editions published between 1943 and 2002 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp traces, in flashback, the intertwined lives of a dashing young officer and his German Counterpart from their first encounter, fighting a duel in Berlin in 1902, to a double defeat - the gallant British officer becomes a crusty old Blimp, and his gallant German counterpart arrives in England as a pathetic refugee from Nazi Germany. The plot is juxtaposed to that of the British officer's thrice lost love - which introduces a disturbing undercurrent of romantic pessimism into what might otherwise seem a nostalgic chronicle. This volume also contains documentary material relevant to Powell and Pressburger's struggle to get the film made in war-torn Britain

When the Allies are finally able to pinpoint its location a trap is set, pitting British Intelligence against a wily and powerful military opponent"--Container
Management of pituitary tumors : the clinician's practical guide by Michael Powell( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Endocrine management has undergone considerable change in the last decade, generating a real need for this brilliantly expanded and fully updated edition of Management of Pituitary Tumors: The Clinician's Practical Guide. Once again, leading physicians from a variety of medical specialties summarize their clinical experiences in treating pituitary adenomas in North America and the United Kingdom. Using simple language to describe their approaches, the authors have produced a comprehensive but user-friendly guide to the many differing aspects of these fascinating tumors. The book combines individual chapters on the latest treatments for prolactinoma, acromegaly, Cushing's disease, and nonfunctioning pituitary tumors. There are also discussions of the latest transsphenoidal and endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgical techniques, and the latest radiotherapy techniques, including Gamma Knife radiosurgery, all explained in terms that the nonsurgical specialist will understand. Expert guidance is also provided on surgical assessment, on anesthetic management, and on the early and long-term postoperative management of pituitary tumors. To round out the clinician's understanding of the illness, a patient describes the actual experience of diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. Authoritative and accessible, Management of Pituitary Tumors: The Clinician's Practical Guide brings together all the medical fields involved in treating pituitary tumors, both for novices across all the specialties that manage these cases, and for those pituitary specialists seeking to understand better the contribution of other medical disciplines to the treatment of these formidable tumors
