There was a poignant coincidence at the brilliant War and Peace Festival in Kent last week. I was revealing the story of Lieutenant General Sir Brian Horrocks’ typhus ordeal in Krasnoyarsk, when a fellow author, Jeff Haward MM, told me about the time when he was Horrocks’ orderly sergeant in World War II. Happy 100th Birthday, Jeff!
My next public event will be on 9th August at the National Army Museum. After the free talk, which starts at 11.30, I will be signing copies of Churchill’s Abandoned Prisoners.
