When I left England at the heightof the 1940 London Blitz, bound for the free French Cameroons, I began a diary for my own interest,...The notes for this book were taken from that diary. My long journey, which took me across the Africa into the mountains of Abyssinia and the deserts of Libya, Iraq and Iran, was the outcome of a roving assignment given me by Life Magazine. - George Rodger
