A book by Hammond Innes

Ralph Hammond Innes July 15, 1913 - June 10, 1998 English writer who has published 35 books. Hammond Innes was born on July 15, 1913 in Horsham (England). After graduating from Crenbrook High School in Kent, he worked for the Financial Times. The first novel "The Doppelganger" was published in 1937. This and three subsequent books Innes did not consider the beginning of his literary career, he considered them only as a bad first experience. In 1937 he married Dorothy Mary Lange, actress and relative of Sir Walter Scott. From 1940 to 1946, the writer served in the Royal Artillery, and his novel "Attack Alarm" (in Russian translation - Air Attack) became the only English book written directly on the battlefield. After the war, Innes engaged only in literary activity, combining it with long travels - six months of travel and research, and then six months in writing, with many of these works depicting the sea. The most significant hobby of the writer was the sea, and before starting to create another nautical novel, the writer definitely set off on a sea voyage to the places of action of the future book. He traveled to Antarctica and the Indian Ocean, the Atlantic and the Greek islands. In England, Innes served as Vice President of the Seafarers` Training Association. In the 80s, the writer is fond of environmental problems, touching upon this topic in his works. He also buys significant land in England, Wales and Australia to reforested those lands. For his literary work, Hammond Innes received the award from the leading detective festival Bouchercon and the title of Commander of the British Empire. Based on materials from sites - Detective. Declaration of love , Hammond Innes profile from kirjasto.sci.fi , Wiki.
