“The ebook revolution has come of age. This is a truly interactive novel. It’s very, very clever and very, very unsettling” - Indie Ebook Review
Read for free on Tumblr
The British may define themselves with the words ‘Dunkirk Spirit’ yet remarkably this is the first novel to tell the full true story of the evacuation in the early months of the Second World War. For the first time, journalist and best-selling author Alan Pearce tells the incredible story of personal sacrifice and bravery both on the home front and in the front line. Drawing on personal accounts and official histories, he dispels the common myths and gives a harrowing perspective of a great defeat and subsequent miracle seen through the eyes of ordinary people in extraordinary times. Heart-warming and compelling, this is a book that raises the spirits, and begs the question could we ever do it again? Read the Reviews.
“IT’S HEALTH & SAFETY GONE MAD”
We no longer face the perils of the Donkey Derby, the danger of Christmas tinsel or risk ‘trip hazards’ from our own doormats. The State has stepped in to keep us all safe from harm. We no longer fear banging our heads on hanging baskets. We don’t have to chance our luck dancing on hard-wood floors. We have a watchful government on the look-out for health and safety ‘crimes’. But we must be prepared to sacrifice our traditional way of life and our age-old pastimes. Wave goodbye to the summer fete, and the May Queen, and ice cream toppings that may leave you quadriplegic. Say hello to the slip-free, risk assessed, cotton wool world of Britain in the 21st century.
“PLAYING IT SAFE”
Imagine a world where you were banned from baking your granny a cake or feeding your child toast. Welcome to Britain in the 21st century where the Job’s Worth now lords it large, issuing edicts of mind-boggling stupidity that ruin the quality of people’s lives all in the name of health and safety. We now live in a world where council workmen legally vandalise the graves of people’s loved ones and where wellington boots come with a 24-page instruction manual. There is virtually no area of our lives left untouched by the Health & Safety Brigade, a group that has banned even more commonplace activities than the Taliban.
“WHOSE SIDE ARE THEY ON? How Big Brother Government is Ruining Britain”
What on earth have we been thinking? We claim to live in a democracy and yet we let the government walk all over us. Tough anti-terror laws ensure ‘bin criminals’ and school catchment cheats are punished while on-the-spot fines keep us all in line. These days we need police approval to protest and may soon need permission to leave the country. Best-selling author and journalist Alan Pearce guides us through a tsunami of shocking new laws and stupendously mad regulations that do nothing to improve our lives but which leave us asking “Whose side are they on?”
