John Timmins has led an extraordinary life, from being given up for adoption at just six months old at the end of World War II and orphaned at a young age, through time spent travelling and working abroad, several troubled marriages and many different careers. The one thing that has dominated his life above all else is his quest to find his true identity. In this poignant and honest account, John talks about his experiences in the Army Intelligence Corps, the countries he has lived in, his failed relationships and how a terrible accident spurred him on to find out the truth surrounding his birth. War Baby details the many highs and lows of one man’s determination to discover his roots. Written in John’s own words, the book records his methodical research, the closed doors and blocked paths as he tries to make sense of his life and reconcile the events of the past. A must-have book for anyone interested in genealogy, social history or real life stories and for all those who are still searching for their own truth.

25th February 1995 The Dark Destroyer vs the G-Man Nigel Benn and Gerald McClennan Two men with a reputation to defend - a reputation for brutal, unforgiving combat both in the ring and outside it. Ostensibly, they were fighting for a world title and a lot of money, the stuff of professional boxing. But this fight was different. It was a rare collision of wills, and few present had seen anything like it. After ten of the most gruelling and vicious rounds that the sport of boxing has ever witnessed McClellan finally was defeated. He knelt in his corner on one knee in submission. And he never got up. This is the story of what brought these two men together on the night of 25th February 1995 and how that night changed them forever. It's a story too about those associated with the promotion of public fist-fighting, who bend morality to suit their needs. It's a story that attempts to unravel the glamour of violence. William Hill Sports Book of the Year Finalist.

Donna Seto investigates why children born of wartime sexual violence are rarely included in post-conflict processes of reconciliation and recovery. The focus on children born of wartime sexual violence questions the framework of understanding war and recognizes that certain individuals are often forgotten or neglected. This book considers how children are neglected sites for the reproduction of global norms. It approaches this topic through an interdisciplinary perspective that questions how silence surrounding the issue of wartime sexual violence has prevented justice for children born of war from being achieved. In considering this, Seto examines how the theories and practices of mainstream International Relations (IR) can silence the experiences of war rape survivors and children born of wartime sexual violence and explores the theoretical frameworks within IR and the institutional structures that uphold protection regimes for children and women.

The complete and fully detailed history of the conception, promotion, financing, design, fabrication, delivery, testing, procurement and production of the first jeeps by the American Bantam Car company for the United States Army. The 400 page book contains hundreds of photos which cover the prewar period when this most significant of American automobiles was created and produced. As much an exciting story of compelling characters as it is the first complete history, a reader will recognize many names in both the public and private which went on to fame in WWII. The book can also be seen as a near text book concerning the practical difficulties in industrial design and procurement, involving as it does the difficulty of innovators satisfying a customer with a design. A careful reader will see the dramatic transition from the ?old America? of the post Civil War era into what we like to call the ?modern times? of the post war era, just now ending. One will see the beginning of Eisenhower's ?Military-Industrial Complex'. Primarily however the book is an inspirational story of a small band of men in a tiny company, struggling for survival which accepts a gigantic challenge and succeeds brilliantly, only to be overwhelmed by the giant government and corporate interests of the time and since forgotten.

Colonel, Brian Collins, U.S. Army, Federal Marshal Tim Fallon and Dr.Michael Shea—all born in 1946 and representative members of the War Baby Generation—are introduced in the opening chapters of the novel, the year all three men turn fifty. The murder of an Army officer and her New York City Police Detective lover, bring Brian, his two childhood friends, and those important to, their past and present lives, together again, in a literary thriller played out in places like Fort Bragg, North Carolina, New York City, New Jersey and Honduras. Behind the media accounts of the war against crime by municipalities where police commanders publically account (Comstat) for the rise and fall of crime in their precincts, and the precision and gadgetry of military smart bombs, behind the strategies and tactics of the Department of Defense, there are people, up and down the chain of command, good and bad, members of paramilitary and military organizations, the rank and file with their own personal drives, ambitions, needs, dark and light sides. War Babies is a story about three of them, drawn together by a murder which connects all three and the people important to them. Metaphorically, War Babies is not without a necessary degree of infant mortality. Death, destruction, complication and intrigue are character driven and serve to intensify and realistically portray the story lives of the characters. War Babies’ is about evolved characters coming to terms with themselves, their partners and a world that the baby boomer generation largely created themselves. Having spent twenty-six years, in one part of my life—in places like Europe, Central America and the United States—both active and reserve in the Army, where I began as a Private and retired as a Major—and written, among other things, Of Cops and Priests and Fact and Fiction, I think War Babies mirrors the reality of police procedure, military protocol and every day characters.
