My name was once Glyndwr Michael. I was a Welshman, a laborer. That is, until I died. My new life, if you can call it that, finds me as a Major in the British Royal Marines. Got a new name too. William Martin. Sounds important. Got a new job too. Suppose to deliver a message. Suppose to turn the tide of war. Let’s hope I succeed.
