More Information
Sapper was born in 1888 in Bodmin Cornwall and was the pseudonym of Herman  Cyril McNeile. He followed in the military tradition of his family and fought in France for which he was mentioned in despatches and awarded the Military Cross for bravery. The Use of the name Sapper came about because as a serving officer he was unable to use his own name and being a member of the Royal Engineers it seemed entirely appropriate. He achieved considerable success even before the creation of his best known character Captain Hugh Drummond DSO MC. It is difficult to overstate the popularity of the character, not only in book form but also on the silver screen. The Ronald Coleman film in 1930 is said to have netted the author $750,000 ! He is still keenly collected today and copies of first editions in their superbly illustrated dust jackets are particularly sought after.
