I was lucky enough last summer to be able to accompany the ACWRTUK on their field trip to Cherbourg. The London round table was dauntingly well read and many of the members had a depth of knowledge that I felt would translate well to books.
Turns out one of the members has written a book, and it’s a subject that touches close to home for me, as I’m the child of Glaswegians and the grandchild of a Glaswegian shipbuilder: The Clyde-built ships that served the Confederacy.
Looks to be a fascinating read. I’m adding it to my wish list!
