AR Lewis skillfully uses prose and poetry to tell his story of growing up during the 1920s, his relationship with the countryside and the colourful characters he met on his journey of discovery. As a soldier serving with the Welsh Guards, David vividly represents his experiences of the Dunkirk evacuation, the D-Day landings and the hard fought battles of the invasion of Europe during World War II. He also shares with us a snapshot from his time as a police officer in post-war London, and concludes with a collection of touching pieces dedicated to the memory of his loving wife of 69 years.

Memoirs Of A Country Man is the conclusion of a trilogy, and includes the first two books, the critically acclaimed The Cup & Saucer Tree and A Field of Red Poppies.
