The Twelfth, first published in 1944 while its author was serving in North Africa, became a classic of sporting humor. The Twelfth & After includes chapters written subsequently by J.K. Stanford and forms a complete memoir of Colonel the Hon. George Hysteron-Proteron, known as one of the best shots in the country. A light-hearted and often hilarious satire, it traces George Hysteron-Proteron's life from the time when still in his cot, he shot his Scottish nanny in the behind with a pea-shooter.
