The Piper of Tobruk is the story of Pipe Major Robert Roy, MBE, DCM, of The Black Watch. Not only does it describe his heroic action at Tobruk, one of the fiercest battles of the Second World War, as well as his extensive military career in India, Greece, and Germany, but also the difficult personal issues he faced when he fell in love with a German woman at the end of that war.
‘Pipe Major Rob Roy is a legendary figure in The Black Watch, itself a legendary Highland infantry regiment. The Piper of Tobruk is an inspiring story of a distinguished and gallant soldier whose exploits in war and peace are genuinely remarkable. This is a book not just for military men (for whom it should be compulsory reading) but for anyone who is interested in the power of the human spirit over adversity and danger.’
Lieutenant General Sir Alistair Irwin, KCB, CBE
