By Robin Knight



Leaders collects in one place for the first time the remarkably personal and distinct stories from Pangbourne College of the courageous men and women in war and peace - accounts that are in danger of being forgotten today. Based on original research and neglected first-person accounts, it covers the period 1917-2020, with a particular emphasis on World War II, the Cold War, the Falklands War and contemporary conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Leaders documents the courageous and singular actions during a century of peacetime, as well as profiling the outstanding Second World War heroes Mike Cumberlege, David Smiley, and GTS 'Peter' Gray. A chapter recounting amazing exploits in the world of international sport adds a separate dimension to the book. Authored by a former foreign correspondent and leading corporate writer, with a Foreword by a leading naval historian, the book has a global dimension and perspective. This is reinforced by the author's years of investigatory work, his experience covering wars and his long-standing knowledge and understanding of the context.
