From around the 1950s to the mid-1980s, if you wanted to join the Police before the age of 18/19, it was possible to become a Police Cadet from 16 onward. It didn’t give you any police powers but did provide you with a good insight into ‘the job’. You got the uniform and went out on patrol with regular officers and undertook attachments to every section within the force to see how each one worked. But prior to all the excitement came 12 months of ‘character building’ at a residential establishment called Cadet Training School. This book looks back at those days within Hampshire and to a time where self-discipline and physical fitness were key to that character building. Today it might be classed as institutional bullying, but most of us loved it……….except for the morning run, the constant uniform inspections, the walks across Dartmoor, punishment press-ups, bulling boots, the food, the blisters and making bed packs.

"Kilo Sierra" is a sea story, a Navy story, and a love story set against the background of American and Asian culture in 1972. "Kilo Sierra" blends Vietnam combat action, antics of sailors on liberty, the hand of fate, and the power of love and friendships. "Kilo Sierra" takes the reader to the mountains of Colorado, jungles of Southeast Asia, and the city streets of the Philippines, Japan, and Hong Kong. The author served in the US Navy, 1965-1993. He retired as a Commander, in Naval Intelligence, and taught social studies in high school and college until 2005. The catalyst for the novel "Kilo Sierra" was his tour aboard USS MIDWAY, 1971-74, while attached to Fighter Squadron 161 -- one of the most famous F-4 Phantom squadrons of the Vietnam War. He later served aboard two other carriers; USS Independence, and USS America; the latter in the Persian Gulf during the 1990-1991 Gulf War, for which he was awarded the Bronze Star.

Is the family left to fend for itself? Thankfully not. A small group of specially trained Police Family Liaison Officers (FLO s) do what most of us could never do. They guide the bereaved family through the entire process, from delivering the trauma message in the first place, to helping them through the ordeal of identifying their loved one at the mortuary, right through to the inquest or court case in 12 months time and everything in between. PC Steve Woodward describes the journey the families embark upon as the biggest roller coaster ride of their lives with more highs and lows than you could ever possibly imagine.

FIRST NEW HONOR HARRINGTON NOVEL IN FIVE YEARS! New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and international best-selling phenomenon David Weber delivers book #19 in the multiple New York Times best-selling Honor Harrington series, the first new Honor Harrington novel since 2013's Shadow of Freedom. HONOR'S FINISHING WHAT SHE STARTED The Solarian League's navy counts its superdreadnoughts by the thousands. Not even its own government knows how enormous its economy truly is. And for hundreds of years, the League has borne the banner of human civilization, been the ideal to which humanity aspires in its diaspora across the galaxy. But the bureaucrats known as the "Mandarins," who rule today's League, are not the men and women who founded it so long ago. They are corrupt, venal, accountable to no one . . . and they've decided the upstart Star Kingdom of Manticore must be destroyed. Honor Harrington has worn the Star Kingdom's uniform for half a century and served her monarch and her people well. In the course of those years, the woman the newsies call the Salamander has grown from a tactically brilliant but politically naïve junior officer to supreme fleet command and a seat on the highest military and political councils of the Grand Alliance. Very few people know war the way Honor Harrington does. Very few have lost as many men and women, as many friends, as much family, as she has. Yet despite that, hers has been a voice of caution. She knows the Mandarins and the Solarian League Navy are growing increasingly desperate as the truth of their technological inferiority sinks home, but she also knows the sheer size of the League. And she knows how its citizens will react if the Grand Alliance takes the war to the League, attacks its star systems, destroys its infrastructure . . . kills its civilians. Today's victory, bought on those terms, can only guarantee a future war of revenge against a resurgent Solarian League and its navy. Honor knows the Grand Alliance must find a victory that doesn't require incursions deep into Solarian space, doesn't leave a legacy of bottomless hatred, and the strategy she supports has been working. The League is sliding towards inglorious defeat as it steadily loses ground in the Protectorates and the Verge. As its central government teeters towards bankruptcy and even some of its core systems opt to secede in the face of the Mandarins' corruption. As the Solarian Navy finally realizes it cannot face an Alliance battle fleet and win. But the Mandarins have embraced a desperate new strategy, and in pursuit of that strategy, the SLN has committed atrocities such as the galaxy has not known in a thousand years. The League have violated its own Eridani Edict against mass civilian casualties, violated the Deneb Accords prohibition on war crimes. And they have finally killed too many of the people Honor Harrington loves. Hers is the voice of caution and compromise no longer, and the galaxy is about to see something it has never imagined. The Salamander is coming for the Solarian League, and Hell is coming in her wake. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

WWIII explodes in this electrifying debut military thriller in the tradition of Red Storm Rising and The Third World War. “Delta-Two, I’ve got tanks through the wire! They’re everywhere!” World War III explodes in seconds when a resurgent Russian Empire launches a deadly armored thrust into the heart of Germany. With a powerful blizzard providing cover, Russian tanks thunder down the autobahns while undercover Spetsnaz teams strike at vulnerable command points. Standing against them are the woefully undermanned American forces. What they lack in numbers they make up for in superior weapons and training. But before the sun rises they are on the run across a smoking battlefield crowded with corpses. Any slim hope for victory rests with one unlikely hero. Army Staff Sergeant George O'Neill, a communications specialist, may be able to reestablish links that have been severed by hostile forces, but that will take time. While he works, it’s up to hundreds of individual American soldiers to hold back the enemy flood. There’s one thing that’s certain. The thin line between victory and defeat is also the red line between life and death.

Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine, the USS Michigan, is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs---experts in seaborne commando operations---are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran's nuclear weapons program. While en route to shore, Michigan's mini-sub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the survivors---four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell---to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity. When agents of Iran's secret police, VEVAK, appear, escape seems all but impossible. When Mitchell and his men find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create a bold plan to escape by sea. It's a desperate gamble, but it's the only way to get proof of the Iranian plot to the U.S. . . . and prevent a devastating new war.
