Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bruce Conde (5 December 1913 - 19 July 1992) was a US Army officer, stamp collector, royal pretender, and a general for Royalist forces during the North Yemen Civil War. Born Bruce Chalmers in San Juan Capistrano, California, Chalmers was orphaned and put up for adoption. As a young boy, he was an avid stamp collector, and had written to the Imam (King) of Yemen, asking for local postage stamps for his collection. His reply came from the Imam's young son, Muhammad al-Badr, and thus started a life long friendship between the two. After studying Spanish at UCLA, he joined the US Army, serving in the 82nd Airborne in North Africa during the Second World War. He was later posted to Japan where he studied Japanese, but his true passion remained the Arab world.show more
