Ruth Sheppard read Ancient and Modern history at St John's College, Oxford and has an interest in all periods of history. Recent published titles include Empires Collide: The French Indian War 1754-68, Extraordinary Heroes: Amazing Stories of Victoria Cross and George Cross Recipients and Alexander the Great at War.
As I said, a quirky but very interesting wee book which is worth keeping on the shelf just to dip in to now and again for amusement, knowledge of US Army infrastructure and general military history. Very useful also if you have 60 US servicemen popping round for tea! * Army Rumour Service *
