His grandfather and father having served in the first and second world wars respectively, both in the army, author and screenwriter Brian L. Porter broke with family tradition to serve with the RAF during the years of the Cold War.
His interest in all things military stems from his family traditions, and from his current involvement with many ex-servicemen’s organizations. Many of the works in this collection are based on the personal experiences of those who took part in the various conflicts they depict, men and women who were pleased to relate those experiences to the author. This anthology showcases his works and displays his talent for placing the reader in the centre of the action, making you feel as if you are really there, sharing in the experience, one minute in the cockpit of a bomber limping home damaged from a raid over enemy territory, the next involved in a dogfight over the Kent countryside during the Battle of Britain.
You will also experience the poignancy of his words, the simple message of “Remembrance”, the moving dignity of “Polska”, and the graphic horror of the concentration camps, as related in “Holocaust”. Read and enjoy!
“I am writing on behalf of all members of 617 squadron to thank you for your written tribute to “The Dambusters”. It is a wonderful piece, which for me captures the spirit and courage of the young men who played a part on that fateful raid”.
Flight Lieutenant Richard Saunders, 617 Squadron RAF, speaking of “Apres Moi le Deluge”.
