The Armoured Train Incident – Out Now!

A hundred and fifteen years ago today, on 15 November 1899, near the start of the Anglo-Boer War, an armoured train manned by British soldiers and containing a young British journalist named Winston Churchill ground its way towards Chieveley in the misty hinterland of Natal, South Africa. The Boers, those fearsome, brave Afrikaner farmers known for their horsemanship and marksmanship, had proved to be a fearsome and formidable force. So as the train steamed along the track, the soldiers were well aware that the often elusive enemy could strike at any time.

The Armoured Train Incident commemorates this event and pays tribute to the brave men involved, including Alexander James Stewart and Charles Wagner, who both played a part that day.

The Armoured Train Incident is available in print from Amazon as well as other online bookstores, and as an ebook from Kindle, Smashwords and most other ebook retailers, including iBooks and Sony.
