A rambunctious crowd was on hand for the launch of “Soldier of the Horse”, my first published novel, which had its genesis in the brutal battlefields of northern France in the Great War. Many thanks to all those friends and family who turned out for the occasion, and to the good people at TouchWood Editions who made it all come together.
At left above is the proud author and wife Pat, together with Barney Flowerdew, nephew of Gordon Flowerdew, VC, who had such a pivotal role in the Battle of Moreuil Wood and therefore in the book itself.
The launch took place in the hall of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6, Cloverdale; an appropriate place for all kinds of reasons.
I just had an email from Sidney Allinson, who blogs under “warwriting”, re Steven Spielberg’s latest epic, due out late this year. Very interesting article in British newspaper at http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1365183/Steven-Spielbergs-War-Horse-Jeremy-Irvine-picked-epic-movie.html
Readers of Soldier of the Horse will be interested, for sure.
