I was very pleased that The British Blacklist chose to throw the spotlight on Isaac Fadoyebo's story to mark the 70th Anniversary of VJ Day. Please read their long and thoughtful piece on Britain's forgotten African Army here, which includes an interview with me and with my friend Ian 'Butch' Stuttard, who was the producer of Burma Boy.

I'll be talking about the Burma Boys and Another Man's War at Asia House in central London on the evening of September 10th.

Asia House is at 63 New Cavendish Street, London, W1G 7LP United Kingdom, and the event starts at 18.45. More details here.

Please do come, it should be a fascinating discussion about the Second World War, and the legacy of the British Empire in Burma and Africa.


I'm looking forward to discussing Another Man's War in Cheltenham on the evening of Friday July 17th. I'll be talking at the Suffolk Anthology Bookshop at 17 Suffolk Parade, at 7.30pm- about the neglected role of African soldiers in the Second World War, the extraordinary story of Isaac Fadoyebo, and the legacy of Empire in Nigeria, Africa and Burma. And, of course, I'll be signing copies of the book. It should be a fascinating evening so if you're near Cheltenham please come along.

The Suffolk Anthology Bookshop is on 01242 361362, and suffolkanthology@gmail.com . Please let them know if you intend to come. Admission is 3 pounds, which includes refreshments.
