Captain Tom's story is our story. It is the story of our past hundred years here in Britain. It's a time which has seen so much change, yet when so much has stayed the same: the national spirit, the can-do attitude, the belief in doing your best for others. In this rich, happy life packed with incident you will encounter time and again the curiosity, courage and generosity that saw Captain Tom look around him during our current crisis and decide that something had to be done

"His upbeat nature shines through and reminds us how much worse this year would have been without him."

Before you even get to the walk, Moore’s life story is worth reading as a record of oral history. He is old enough for this not to have been his first pandemic. He was born just as Spanish Flu was easing, in the year Rupert Bear was created and has lived through the Second World War, the first moon landing, the swinging sixties and the fall of the Berlin Wall... Despite a baggy, saccharine start, it is hard to criticise a man who has done so much good. His upbeat nature shines through and reminds us how much worse this year would have been without him.

"The beloved veteran's memoir shows a man entirely unwilling to be beaten down by circumstance - surely required reading for all politicians"

What sets Moore apart from later generations is his unwillingness to be beaten down by circumstance. If he has a setback – and he has had many – he deals with it and moves on, trusting to hard work, common sense and the belief that tomorrow will be better (hence the book’s title). It often is. His wonderful and instructive life story – beautifully ghostwritten by the author Wendy Holden – should be required reading for politicians everywhere.
