Where were you at Waterloo?
My first novel, written in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just across the road from Harvard Law School. As the reviews suggest, I was having a go at the absurdities of military life.The book’s themes of equipment shortages and troops returning from combat to an indifferent public were echoed in the early days of the Afghan war.

‘Combines military satire with exotic thrills in a book reminiscent at its best of that sublime beast Black Mischief’ – Financial Times
‘All good, clean fun and never heavy-handed’ – Daily Telegraph
‘Passages of pure comic pleasure’ – Spectator
