Battling Burnaby: The Awe-Inspiring Exploits Of A Great Adventurer

Colonel Fred Burnaby is one of the greatest adventurers who ever lived and he was the kind of man on which romantic legends are built. A fearless dare-devil and intrepid traveller, he made two perilous journeys across Asia, and he became the first person to cross the English Channel single-handedly in a balloon. However, his first love was fighting and he was killed in action in the Sudan.

About James W Bancroft

In the four decades James has been writing he has produced more than a hundred books and articles, the subjects of which reflect his varied interests. These include military actions such as the Defence of Rorke's Drift and the Battle of the Alamo; the sports arena including the Olympic Games and the Rorke's Drift Test; and events which made history like the Titanic disaster and the Gunfight at the OK Corral.

Before the end of the year he will publish: 'Zulus! Thousands of Them!' - A Graphic Account of the Defence of Rorke's Drift'; and 'Bulldog Breed: The 1914 Lions and the Rorke's Drift Test'.

When he is not writing James enjoys singing, playing and listening to music, and spending as much time as he can with his family.
