Adrian Carton de Wiart seems to have lived a rather full life. Served in 6 different wars, wounded 11 times resulting in the loss of an eye and 2 limbs and escaping from a POW camp in Italy during WWII are just some of his exploits

 Adrian Carton de Wiart wrote a book about his life called  'Happy Odyssey'.  I downloaded it to my Kindle.  Based on the comments, I'm not sure it is  an "true" autobiography, but more a collection of stories about things that happened during his life.  I'm looking forward to reading it.
