Product Description

Review

"[Heroes] is a humbling project, allowing the voices of those whose lives have been changed by war to speak to us with the raw directness of feeling and experience" (Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate)

"[John Jeffcock] has provided a unique opportunity for many to express their emotions in poetry as our forefathers did in previous conflicts." (Major General Sir Evelyn Webb-Carter KCVO OBE Dl, CEO, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity)

"I have read many war poems written by those who have taken part in previous conflicts, and is only right and proper that we now have a book of poems by those who have witnessed modern day warfare. It's important that war is told like it is as future generations need to understand the sacrifice of past conflicts." (Andy McNab)

"Some very moving poems... so much better for being raw and spontaneous" (Country Life)

About the Author

John Jeffcock, born in London in 1968, passed out of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 1989 to join the Coldstream Guards. He was part of the Allied Force that entered Iraq and freed Kuwait, the UN protection force in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and served in South Armagh's 'Bandit Country', one of the most notorious parts of Northern Ireland. Over the same period he trained in armoured infantry in Germany, desert and jungle warfare in Kenya and ceremonial duties in London.

He was mentioned in despatches, won one of the most arduous infantry competitions and left the army after six years as a captain. He is married to Katrin and lives in West London with his family.
