An Englishman in Albania: Memoirs of a British Officer, 1929-1955
This book tells of the hold that Albania and its people came to exercise over one Englishman. Colonel Dayrell Oakley-Hill's memoirs provide a vivid description of the landscape, people and customs of this beautiful country and the two very different leaders that he came to know well--King Zog and Enver Hoxha. Oakley-Hill returned to the UK in 1955, but never severed his connections with Albania. Right up to his death in 1985 he was tireless in his efforts to help Albanian refugees and for many years served as Secretary to the Anglo-Albanian Association.
