Undercover
Military Intelligence are searching for a suitably qualified secret agent. Captain Sandy Mitchell and his Russian born female partner drop right into the net that takes them to Morocco and then across the Atlantic. The authors have strived to create a short book that fulfills Alfred Hitchcock's requirements of a storyline that complies with the MacGuffin concept of an exciting plot. A detective thriller with suspense, violence, and very much a page turning novel, that finishes with a surprise ending. The action takes place in Europe, then onto the Caribbean, with a climax in Bermuda, uncovering the need to prevent a possible embarrassment in the highest echelons of the US. At just over 100 pages, written to lead the reader from chapter to chapter, determined to reach the end, which might just confirm their own conclusions regarding the verdicts of the undercover detectives.

Templar
General William Caldwell when introducing the US Army's new manual, tells of how there is now great emphasis on the need to win 'Hearts & Minds.' This is exactly the policy adopted by General Templar, High Commissioner and Director of Operations, guiding Malaya towards Independence, and the defeat of a Communist Terrorist Chinese trained army of over 5,000. His story in this book revolves around the unique, even if small, contribution made by an independent 4-gun troop of 93 (Le Cateau) Battery, Royal Artillery, whilst serving our 'Supremo, ' whose policy became the envy of many US politicians, worried by events in Vietnam.

Knight Without Armor
There are stories of exciting, if unusual, secret service operations, centering on a senior intelligence officer, using the Knights Templar for his cover. The fast moving action reveals how easy it is to lay oneself open to serious problems with the authorities. Much of the content is based on actual occurrences, whilst other parts have been fictionalized. Completely up-to-date, with even a mention of climate change. Tom Paxton, one of the investigators, carries the reputation of being a descendant of Charles Paxton, the Collector of Customs during the Boston Tea Party. Should you doubt the existence of the Knights Templar, you might well change your opinion when you've read this book, and if like millions of TV viewers around the world, you watched the service of remembrance service for Diana, Princess of Wales, you will have noticed how the Royals took precedence over the few politicians invited to attend. Throughout history, the Knights Templar have been close to royal families.

Airbridge to Berlin
Describing the immense Allied response to the Russian closure of the road and rail routes into Berlin in 1948. It's interesting to reflect that at that time, President Vladimir Putin hadn't even been born, and one wonders how old he was before he heard of the Berlin airlift, that became the World's largest humantarian relief effort, and cost the lives of 70 Allied aircraft pilots. But it possibly did stop the start of a shooting war. Well illustrated with photographs taken whilst serving with the 1st Bn The Royal Norfolk Regiment in Dusseldorf and Berlin. The airlift is still better remembered in the US than in the EU, except perhaps by elderly Germans in Berlin.
