Thanks for the opinions. All I can say is that I have looked at all the evidence I could find, which is more than anyone else has - please let me know if this is wrong - and these are my conclusions. Other writers in this field, such as Prebble, McLynn and Duffy, to name three, use far fewer sources, as you will see from their bibliographies. As someone whose book I was critising wrote to me, write your own book. Well, I did (this is my second book on the '45).
Interestingly, reviewers in Miniature Wargames, The Armourer and other publications who have reviewd this book, think I have been unbiassed.
I suspect you disagree with my conclusions and would prefer a more black and white account. I have always thought that history - or life for that matter - is rather more complex.
