Red Cushing - Soldier for Hire
John Calder, Publishers, 1962

"With three or four Guinnesses down my gullet, I'm the greatest story-teller since old
Paddy Flynn of County Sligo, and that's gospel"

So begins this rolliciking tale of Thomas "Red" Cushing, who at various times was a weapons smuggler
for the IRA,
a semi-professional boxer, a U.S. soldier in Nicaragua helping Sandino, a fighter against
Fascism in the Spanish Civil War,
and a soldier in WWII. Some of it even appears to be true...
