War on Wheels was about the men and women (including my father and mother) who mechanised the Army in WW2; MacRoberts Reply, is the story of an aircraft, the woman who bought her and the men who flew her; Ordnance explores what some of those people in my first book and others experienced in supplying the Army in WW1. My current work in progress is about William Smith Williams who discovered Charlotte Bronte; my next looks at men who served in both wars. They are all people’s stories.
