(1920-2012) UK soldier who served in World War Two and became a senior general in the UK armed forces in the postwar period; in retirement, from a Conservative position, he opposed the second war with Iraq as unjustified, and "unwise, to the point of insanity". He began publishing fiction and nonfiction around 1980, his best-known fiction being the Hardrow Chronicles, contemporary military tales in several volumes beginning with Adam Hardrow (1982). Of sf interest is August 1988 (1983), a Future War story. [JC]
