From Wikipedia: "Ian Hawkins became interested in the history of the Second World War as a boy growing up in East Anglia; his father, a Royal Navy destroyer commander, and an uncle, a Royal Air Force squadron leader, were both killed in action. A former civil engineer, he sustained very severe head injuries in an attack in Saudi Arabia in 1976 and was left paralyzed down one side of his body. He now uses a wheelchair as a result of his paralysis. Ian's books follow an unusual style in that they are made up in part of quotes from people who actually took part in the action. Obviously this is a very time consuming way of writing a book and "The Munster Raid" took over thirty years to compile."
