In Rough Justice, National Serviceman, Corporal Lloyd Freeman, tells how he and a hundred other British soldiers were involved in a tragic barn fire in Austria whilst taking part in manoeuvres with American forces. He escaped but four men died. Many others were seriously injured. The bravery of Austrian fire fighters and the speed of American rescuers and medics prevented many more deaths. The survivors knew how the fire started but were sworn to secrecy. A Military Court of Inquiry was held to discover the cause but the full details were never made public.
Fifty years on, the author, who had been one of the soldiers in the barn, obtained the Tribunal documents from the Public Record Office. His discoveries increased his determination to write Rough Justice in which the truth is revealed, together with a realistic plot in which Lloyd Freeman and his mates from training, discover that two battle hardened soldiers intend to wreak vengeance upon the perpetrator.
