Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312997116, Mass Market Paperback)When Charlie Trumper inherits his grandfather's fruit and vegetable barrow, he inherits as well his enterprising spirit, which quickly lifts him out of poverty in London's East End. Success, however, does not come easily or quickly, particularly when World War I sends Charlie into combat and into an ongoing struggle with a vengeful enemy who will not rest until Charlie is destroyed. Charlie Trumper's epic journey carries him across three continents and through the triumphs and disasters of the twentieth century, all leading toward the fulfillment of his greatest dream.

Charlie's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants to follow in his footsteps. This is an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century.
