About Ken Ford

Ken Ford has been writing military books for over 25 years. To date (May 2014) he has 35 titles to his name. His original career took him from the Physics laboratories of Southampton University to a position in middle management within British Telecoms, with numerous experiences as a road-bound traveller along the way. He began his full time writing career in 1992. He now lives on the outskirts of Southampton in southern England with his wife Valda. He spends most of his time writing when he is not annoying his three grandchildren Katelyn, Adam and Joseph, with boring tales of his adventurous past. (his two daughters Amanda and Joanne have heard it all before and are beyond boredom). Oh, and he also supports Southampton Football Club from his seat in the stands. By the way, his profile picture is ten years old!

Review by: James Jenkins on Nov. 15, 2014 :
This book covers 70+ years in 10,000 words and provides what seems to be an accurate image of life in the time period. Supported by historical facts, and well written.

I was very surprised at the life span of many of the individuals.
