LONDON (PRWEB) December 10, 2006
David J Stanford is pleased to announce the release of Roses in December.
The Battle of Hong Kong took place between 8th December and 25th December 1941. This is the tale of the Stanford family and how they were affected by this rarely documented battle. It tells of life in the Army, life in the colonies, the battle itself, in particular the role played by The Royal Scots 2nd Battalion, the infamous Lisbon Maru, and how the family lived, coped with the war, dealt with evacuation, repatriation, and post war.
The book will be of interest not only to general readers for the fascinating family story, but to military enthusiasts with the book covering details of the defence of Hong Kong, its participants and events building up to, during, and after the fall of Hong Kong, and also to aircraft enthusiasts having pictures of aircraft at the time of the fall of Hong Kong - Japanese, civilian and allied aircraft are covered.
With three versions available, all with 100 photos, there is a version suitable for everyone.
The author, David Stanford, is an IT specialist and grandson of the main characters in this tale. Married with two children and one grandson, lives in Kent, in the United Kingdom. His hobbies include reading, travel, photography, films, and World War II history.
