UNCLE WALTER’S SECRET

“Terry Sexton’s involvement in the Spanish civil war serves as an introduction to the main story in which he becomes a secret agent working for British intelligence to carry out under cover assignments during WW2. He finds himself involved in activities of extreme daring and national importance.
Will Fenn’s knowledge of the intelligence workings of WW2, ranging from wartime aircraft to enigma code breaking, is impressive.
The compelling narrative makes for a cracking read and would readily translate into an action movie. Thoroughly recommended
“.

Dr. Noel Stephens

“A thrilling tale of intrigue, history, passion and covert operational planning based on real events around World War 2. The story provides a fascinating insight of what might have gone on behind the scenes. The book is full of detail from a previous era bringing it all back to life as one transports through the story into a real-life scenario – bringing the bravery of civilian and servicemen to the fore. Further capturing key aspects of the previous Spanish Civil War which heighten one’s interest from a historical standpoint. Pertinently giving an account of the later post war days with an empathic touch.
An exciting read for anyone whilst also educating the reader of key historic milestones – I would thoroughly recommend this book.”

THE KNIFE AND FORK MAN

“This book, extremely well written by VAC member Bill Fairney, gives a fascinating insight into the life and work of a man who was most certainly ahead of his time in the development of engines for use in a number of applications….   This is such a well researched and absorbing book that I found it hard to put down.  Even if engineering is not your subject, his life story in itself is well worth the read and gives an insight into the man, his work and his times.”

Paul Loveday, Vintage Aeroplane Club
