Renegade Hero

B1677

This is a non-fiction book that reads like a gripping adventure novel. It tells the story, or perhaps a part of the story, of a British helicopter pilot who disappeared from the RAF and flew for the CIA in Africa. Like the story of another British helicopter pilot, Alan Bristow, this tale has inspired fictional work and covers a period of the Cold War where military pilots set up their own companies or worked for shadowy organizations in the Hot Wars that were the surrogate actions of the Cold War protagonists.

Wingate Pasha, The Life of General Sir Francis Reginald Wingate 1861-1953

B1676

The author has gone a long way to redress the lack of visibility of one of the most important soldiers of the British Empire. Sir Francis Wingate participated in the key Middle East events from the Dervish uprising in the Sudan, to the destruction of the Ottoman Empire. It is difficult to see how history could have overlooked him. If only British and American politicians and generals had studied Wingate a much more successful outcome could have been achieved in the recent occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Royal Train, The Inside Story

B1670

The paradox of narrow minded political thought sees one group of people trying to force the British population to use public transport and particularly to use the railway system, but at the same time claiming that the Royal Train is outdated and irrelevant. For centuries, the British Royal Family relied heavily on water transport because travel overland was dangerous and slow. When the railway system expanded rapidly through the second half of the Nineteenth Century, it provided a level of speed and comfort that was ideally suited to taking members of the Royal Family out to the corners of the British Isles.
