    I hope you'll forgive this shameless self-promotion. Today, Penguin released my latest book, Human Game: The True Story of the 'Great Escape' Murders and the Hunt for the Gestapo Gunmen, in the US (the UK edition will hit stores on 7 March 2013).

    Detailing the 50 murders following the 'Great Escape," and the Royal Air Force's manhunt across post-war Europe for the killers, the book is the result of three years researching and writing. It's based primarily on the official case files of the Special Investigating Branch of the RAF Police.

    I hope some of you will read and enjoy it.

    Thanks!

    Sounds pretty good. I'll put in my "to read" queue.

    Welcome Simon and I'll make you a deal. I see you have some good reviews from some reliable sources. Not from the "Daily Mail or the "Sun" like a previous author who stitched together a rather grotesque Hitler fable who visited a while back. I've read Jim DeFelice's "Omar Bradley: General at War" and if he says you're good, that's good enough for me. Oh right, the 'deal'. Promise to stick around and discuss your works and WW2 in general and I'll order "Human Game - " for the Kindle.
    Sorry, must be the Scotch typing but a deals a deal.
    Seriously, Welcome and your book is now on my wish list at amazon :)

    I'll second Biak's Scotch-uttered offer, Simon: Stick around and allow us to interact with you regarding your book and you'll have a customer. :D

    Did you get it, or is there some other reason that it "fell"?

    Hoping for more interaction other than a one shot post. Plus I've got too many books stacked up to read as it is.
    Probably just my mood due to the sub-freezing temperatures, sleet/snow the last 24 hours and not being able to shoot anything lately :eek:

    Yeah I can handle the snow but when the deck is covered in ice, whitecaps are rolling down the lake and the only "ducks" I've seen close enough to shoot are those $1500 Grebes, well I ain't ready yet for this! Oh and I pulled my back so the bow hunting is on hold too. Gee's it a pain to get old. :eek:
