On 7th March 2004, former SAS soldier and mercenary Simon Mann prepared to take off from Harare International Airport with an aeroplane full of heavy weaponry and guns for hire. Their destination: the former Spanish colony of Equatorial Guinea. Their mission: to remove one of the most brutal dictators in Africa in a privately organised coup d'etat. The plot had the tacit approval of Western intelligence agencies and, according to Mann, the backing of a European government. Simon Mann had personally planned, overseen and won two wars in Angola and Sierra Leone. Everything should have gone right. Why, then, did it go so wrong? When Simon was released from five years' incarceration in two of Africa's toughest prisons, he made worldwide headlines. Since then, he has spoken to nobody about his experiences. Now, he is telling everything, including: * His belief that the CIA deliberately compromised the coup to court favour with Equatorial Guinea's President Obiang, in return for access to the country's vast oil resources. * How the British government approached Simon in the months preceeding the Iraq war, asking him to suggest ways in which a justified invasion of Iraq could be engineered. * The real story behind the involvement of Mark Thatcher in the coup plot * Simon will also tell of his pain when he had to tell his wife, Amanda, who gave birth to their fourth child while he was incarcerated, that he believed he would never be freed.This is Simon's remarkable first-hand account of his life: an account that will read like a thriller as it takes us into the world of mercenaries and spooks: of murky imternational politics, big oil and big bucks; of action, danger, love, despair and betrayal.

The arms race, on the run up to the Second World War, followed the faultless logic of paranoia. Before the First World War, the Great Powers measured the strength of their rivals by comparing the size of armies and navies, and the money spent on them. Afterwards, having learned the lessons of 'total war', they looked at the capacity of nations to mobilise their economies and populations for war. Deep planning, they realised, was necessary to prepare for potential conflicts; but with this attitude came a sense that society might need to be in a state of perpetual readiness for conflict, and a potential openness to totalitarian levels of state control in ensuring that readiness. In Cry Havoc Joe Maiolo shows, in rich and fascinating detail, how the arms race between the Great Powers developed. Where previous histories have looked at how individual nations responded to the challenges of the time, Maiolo reveals the full complexity of the arms race by looking at competition between nations, at how nations reacted to the moves of their rivals. Maiolo provides a vivid portrait of the thinking of those making the key decisions - of the thinking of Hitler, Mussolini, Chamberlain, Stalin, Roosevelt - and reveals the full extent of the dilemmas confronted by the leaders of the western democracies, who seemed at times to be faced with a choice between defending their nations and preserving the essential democratic nature of the societies they sought to defend. Cry Havoc is an absorbing account of a time of extreme tensions, showing how the deadly game of the arms race led, ultimately, to an unleashing of the dogs of war.

I wanted to feel something, anything, as I gazed down at the body of my packmate on the medical examiner’s table. All I could muster was a kind of numb stoicism. Katrina was the eighth, and last. A single silver bullet to the back of her head had burned her brain to a crisp and left her beautiful face a ruin. She hadn’t even had the chance to see it coming. But as a werewolf, and, moreover, her alpha, I didn’t rely on facial recognition. Not only could I smell who she was, even over the stink of death, chemicals, and stainless steel in the morgue, but I knew her, down in my marrow. I’d felt her die, a lightning-stab through every nerve ending and a scorching blaze in my skull that jerked me awake screaming in the wee hours of the morning. She’d gone in for some kind of crisis at the all-night restaurant she managed—and been ambushed. Brushing a strand of her dark-brown hair behind her ear, I swallowed and closed my eyes, nodding...

This fictional story is based upon a mercenary operation in Mozambique where three ageing ex-soldiers were tasked to restore order in the area of the port of Maputo and railyard complex so that aid and commercial vessels could conduct their business. This war-ravaged country, which had seen a fifteen-year conflict between the factions of Frelimo and Renamo, was at an end, and had left a lawless and hopeless situation for the starving population. The story, beguiling yet spiced with startling scenes of horror and violence, is told with humour based upon the team's comradeship, where they operated in spartan conditions dealing with horrific situations until the completion of their contract, leaving them somewhat battered, but alive. The story ends with a suitable twist in the tale, and the question of whether they would ever do it again?

"Join the military, see the world" still has the same draw in the future of 2410 as it has throughout history. The military only becomes more enticing with the thrill of fighting alongside cosmopolitan alien races and intelligent dinosaurs. Yet for the cadets in their last year of Ganymede Military Academy, they have other worries than simply what the next year in the Janissary Corps will bring. Jane Harper is a master tactician, but cannot look someone in the eye to speak. Paris Fairnought is greater in all physical aspects to his fellow cadets, but hates the price that was paid for his superior abilities. Salem Winchester is pretty, poised, and looks perfect on the outside, but inside she fears that she will fail as a Janissary. Sand Falconer has a smile for everyone, but his small stature makes him a target for malcontents. Into the midst of these four teenagers, full of self-doubts, steps Assault Sergeant Alexander Black, on special detail to instruct them. The veteran of over a hundred close combat assaults, he has been tasked with molding them into an elite fighting quartet, and he will not be alone in this endeavor. A deadly Khajali Schismatic will show them the meaning of conviction and how to apply to their battles on and off the battlefield. Having turned his back on the wanton, pillaging culture of his people, he knows what it means to walk away from everything to be true to yourself. The Old Blooded, the self-aware and intelligent dinosaurs who fight alongside humanity, will teach the team the wisdom that the dinosaurs have learned through hard struggle in over sixty years of combat. These external forces act upon Epsilon Squad, and the four cadets begin to bond in spite of themselves. That bond allows them to survive a disastrous live patrol, and brings them together when a monster from Black's past arrives and brings all the dark secrets of the Terran Empire with it. Can they overcome their flaws and become the heroes they were born to be and, as their motto says, cry havoc?
