My interest in WW2 comes from my uncle, S/Sgt Billy Marfleet, who was a British Glider Pilot. He died when his glider crashed into the Channel on the night of 5/6 June 1944. I wanted to know more about Billy's experiences as a Glider Pilot, so I started my research. This led to 'One Night In June', which tells the story of the operation in which he was involved. The book was updated and republished in 2014 as 'Operation Tonga: The Glider Assault 6th June 1944'.
My interest in Airborne Forces grew and my continued research led to reading about Operation Varsity. There wasn't a great deal of information on this pivotal event, and the only book on the whole operation was in German. So, I continued my research, contacted archives and veterans and 'The Last Drop' is the result.
I have now turned to scriptwriting and you can find more information about this new venture on my webiste - www.stephenlwright.uk
