Now only 99p: Memorable Encounters by Sir John Nott (Kindle and ePub editions), who served as Secretary of State for Defence during the Falklands War.

Sir John Nott features heavily in the current BBC series, Thatcher: A Very British Revolution – find full details and catch up on episodes 1-3 via iPlayer.

About the book: During his varied career John Nott has encountered numerous interesting people, some household names and others well-known in their field. In Memorable Encounters he has selected twenty individuals to discuss and reflect on their contribution.

His seventeen years as an MP, latterly as a Cabinet Minister, brought him into contact with leading politicians, including Enoch Powell, Margaret Thatcher and Norman Tebbit. While Defence Secretary during the Falklands War he worked closely with Admiral Lewin and General Bramall. As a young officer he served with the 2nd Gurkhas and, through a profile of Humbahadur Thapa, he describes his experiences with these stalwart soldiers.

Nott’s principal career was in the City and he describes the role Siegmund Warburg played in his life. To add variety and spice, the Author includes personalities whom he came across during his education, farming in Cornwall and pursuing his interest in fishing. Additionally he describes his friendship with impressive characters including Ted Hughes, the Poet Laureate, and Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal. Robin Day, whose interview he famously walked out of, features as does Nigel Farage.

All these characters and more make Memorable Encounters an unforgettable read.

Waterloo: The Campaign of 1815, volumes I and II
John Hussey has been awarded the RUSI Duke of Wellington Medal for Military History for Waterloo: The Campaign of 1815, volumes I and II. He was also previously awarded the Templer Medal from The Society for Army Historical Research (2017).

A representative from RUSI wrote the following statement: ‘We were particularly impressed with Waterloo since it obviously represented a lifetime of scholarship and amounted to a towering achievement on a subject that is hardly short of distinguished contributions! I personally enjoyed every page of both volumes (and a good many of the footnotes) and felt that it offered definitive judgements on just about every significant aspect of the Waterloo Campaign. And, not least, it treats this part of our history as a continuum of events, not just as a discrete ‘battle’. When the Duke famously said that you may as well try to reconstruct a society ball as a battle, he was in no position to know what a historian of your abilities would be capable of 200 years later!’

Find out more about the Duke of Wellington Medal for Military History and the 2019 shortlist via rusi.org.

You can watch a video of John Hussey delivering the annual Templer Lecture in November 2018 via YouTube.

New paperback editions of both volumes are expected to be published later this year. Kindle and ePub editions are currently only £4.99 each.
