A one-eyed, one-handed warrior who preferred to lead from the front rather than sip champagne with the other aristocrats, Adrian Carton De Wiart charged, lied, and cursed his way through the Boer War, both World Wars, and a bunch of other almost-forgotten conflicts, leaving a trail of his own body parts behind him with nary a care. In this episode I chat with Andrew Byrne about the life of this extraordinary man and the times he lived in. Get ready to enter the trenches, earn your Victoria Cross, and do your best to get mentioned in dispatches!
