About the Author

After meeting only a few years ago while researching a local PoW camp that they were individually writing about, Ken and Stephen have since collaborated on several books. Ken is a well-respected local historian who has spent many years writing about and giving talks on Laindon and Langdon Hills, whilst Stephen had his first book, Two Sons in a War Zone: Afghanistan: The True Story of a Father’s Conflict, published in 2010. It is his personal account of his sons serving in Afghanistan. Both Ken and Stephen had grandparents who served in and survived the Great War.
