War on Wheels led me on a voyage of discovery not only into the work of the RAOC and REME in WW2, but also the significant role played by the British Motor Industry. This led me to explore the broader role of British industry in WW1, in Ordnance. From here it was people, and how so many brought expertise to the army from industry; I tell of the lives of such people and those leaders with whom they worked, in Dunkirk to D Day.
I have now grasped the industrial nettle and have spent the last two years exploring just where all these incredible companies came from. Their story I now tell in How Britain Shaped the Manufacturing World, which it to be published by Pen & Sword in 2022.
