NEW BOOK - Top Ten Reasons to Leave the EU

 Much has been written about Britain’s unhappy relationship with the European Union, but although a referendum is looking increasingly likely in the next few years, many people remain unaware of just how much damage the EU has done to this country. This short and easy-to-read book sets out the main issues clearly and succinctly, spelling out the benefits of regaining our independence. An ideal for anyone still in the dark about the EU or undecided how to vote if we are given the chance to regain our freedom.

John Petley: Biography
John Petley is somewhat of a latecomer to politics. He read music at Oxford before pursuing a career in IT, interrupted by two years at Moorlands Bible College, where he studied for a diploma in applied theology.
His political involvement began in 2000 when he was handed a leaflet about the European Union. This resulted in him joining UKIP and standing as the party’s candidate for the Lewes constituency in the 2005 General Election. He then worked for two years as a researcher in the European Parliament in Brussels.
Although not currently a member of any political party, John is still passionate in his belief that the UK should withdraw from the EU. His research paper On the Wrong Track, which highlighted the growing interference of Brussels in the UK railway network, was published by the Bruges Group in 2009. He is currently editor of Freedom Today, the quarterly magazine of The Freedom Association, which regularly features articles from several leading proponents of UK withdrawal.
Outside of politics, John enjoys steam trains, classical music, keeping guinea pigs, gardening and country walks. He is married to Katherine and lives in Gloucestershire. An Evangelical Christian, he preaches from time to time in various churches in the south of England.

Eyewitness reports by people travelling in the more remote areas of northern Queensland speak of a savage creature over 5 feet long that can climb trees, spring like a tiger and climb trees like a leopard. It has been seen to kill calfs, slaughter kangaroos and feast on wallabies. But without a body to study, scientists are reluctant to accept that this strange killer is a reality.

In this book cryptid expert Larry Jaffer reviews the evidence for this mysterious beast and comes to some surprising conclusions.

NEW EBOOK - The Battle of Brighton 1377

NEW EBOOK -  The Battle of Brighton 1377

A book about the bloody Battle of Brighton, one of the lesser known battles of the medieval Hundred Years War between England and France.
In 1377 a powerful French fleet landed an army on the beach at Brighton - then a small fishing village known as Brighthelmstone. The village went up in flames and the French stormed inland to loot, plunder, murder and rape. The local militia mustered at Lewes under local knights and set out to attack the French and exact revenge. The climatic battle was fought just to the east of the modern town centre, with part of the battlefield on the open downs which have changed little since 1377 allowing the course of the fighting to be traced on the ground.
This book brings an exciting new look to the Hundred Years Wars. The course of the campaign is given, but the emphasis is on the Battle of Brighton and the men who fought there. There are detailed analyses of weapons, tactics and strategies, tactical diagrams explain how the troops formed up and moved, and a study of the commanders. The course of the battle is followed with the aid of maps, relating to the ground today. The aftermath of the battle, its effects and importance to the progress of the war are then described.
The “Bretwalda Battles” series has been running with increasing success as printed books and as ebooks for five years.


Chapter 1 The 100 Years’ War
Chapter 2 Leaders at Brighton
