The White Squadron

London: The Adventurer's Club, 1961.

Hardcover. Fine in a very good dust jacket. 186 pp, with map, photographs. A clean, tightly bound copy with no visible wear.

At the age of 17, the author ran away from her school in Rome to join her uncle, a member of the White Squadron--a multinational group of men who "battled against the ruthless Arab drug and slave traffickers in the remote areas of the Sahara and Libyan deserts." She remained with the Squaron for 4 years, patrolling the desert on camel-back, living "the tough life of a trooper," amd experiencing a variety of hardships and adventures, which are recounted here.
