About the Author

Terry Crowdy has a life long passion for history which was first kindled working on the Fort Amhurst restoration project in the Medway Towns on the coast of England, where he spent his school summer vacations as a fortress tunnel guide. Through this association he developed a passionate interest in the Napoleonic Wars and participated in many of the bicentennial celebrations marking the wars of the French Revolution. His enthusiasm led to significant research in the French military archives at the Château de Vincennes near Paris. Terry became equally passionate about the history of 'Secret War' - in particular military espionage - a subject he feels is too often overlooked. After a long stint as bass guitarist for the rock group "Soma", Terry put pen to paper and is now the author of a number of books and articles on military history. He lives in Kent, England. The author lives in Kent, UK.
