The Lost legend of the Hawk was a total eye-opener. If you like History, carefully researched from the original Latin documents, and transcribed in an entertaining,factional, but totally logical way, read this book. You will not be disappointed.Hopefully, Towton and the amazing battles that changed the face of English history within it`s borders will now get some recognition.


An interesting view of the technicalities of tank warfare.

History of War

An extremely engaging novel; a gripping tale of life and drama at sea during one of the worst storms in British history.

Your Family Tree

Scott portrays an honest and often haunting vision of the years following the First World War; from the circus of battlefield tourism to the emotional scars of an entire generation. Gripping and deeply affecting.
