Authors & Friends

On this page I listed people and authors to whom I have a relation. Either they were co-authors of one of the books presented on this side or we were in contact for other reasons, mainly about “desert related” subjects.

Please check out the books and publications of these authors and friends of mine.

Taylor, Elliot

Read the true story of the West Ham Battalion volunteers in the Great War. Read this exciting untold story and share in their pride and sadness, the good times and bad – from basic training on Wanstead Flats and route marching along Green Street in 1915 as riots erupted around them, through to the deadly meat-grinder of the Somme in 1916 and finally their epic last stand at Cambrai in 1917. Over a decade of research has revealed long forgotten people and memories. It’s a story of local pride, the like of which will never come again. Through official documents, eye-witness accounts, diaries, newspaper reports and nearly 60 never before published photographs of the West Ham Battalion you will discover the men, their private and collective battles and their ultimate fate.
