The day the pubs ran dry: 9 - 3



Llanelli Rugby Club defeated the All Blacks on 31st of October 1972. This legendary result has been called one of the top ten moments in rugby history, and possibly one of the greatest rugby upsets ever.

The story of the game is retold in this book and each one on the pitch for Llanelli that day recollects the achievement. There is a chapter also on maestro Carwyn James, the inimitable Ray Gravell, and Max Boyce tells of writing his famous song. This is a book to be treasured by all rugby supporters.

Overcoming boundaries, broadening horizons, exploring the unknown—this is what Land Rover has represented for the past sixty-five years. The tenth Land Rover Experience Tour took place in 2013, and we’re accompanying the eleven selected participants along the fabled Silk Road through eleven countries and five cultures. But it’s not only this year’s anniversary ride that is spectacular. Stunning images and compelling stories of past tours take us on a journey through Jordan, Malaysia, Bolivia, Iceland, and other fascinating countries—awakening the readers’ spirit of adventure. In addition to great landscapes, the focus is also on the rich traditions behind these dynamic overland vehicles. With insider reports from Dag Rogge, head of the Land Rover Experience Tour, we really are following in the footsteps of Indiana Jones.

Over forty years of research has resulted in this exceptional photographic history of life within Colditz Castle, the infamous Second World War prisoner of war camp in Germany, which housed such illustrious names as Douglas Bader, Lorne Welch, Micky Burns and Jack Best. Michael Booker has accumulated a wealth of information from talking to ex-POWs, as well as the German commandant Prawitt and the head of security Captain Eggers. He relates fascinating and hitherto unpublished stories of British, Polish and French prisoners, and their many and varied attempts to escape. In addition, he has amassed a large collection of artefacts and memorabilia, some never seen before, many of which are reproduced throughout this book. Personal recollections abound, and characters like Pat Reid, Dick Howe and Sir Rupert Barry offer their insight into camp activities. This entire collection, sumptuously illustrated, stands as a testament to those who were incarcerated there and is a valuable reference on the subject.

In the spring of 1966, while the war in Vietnam was still popular, the US military decided to reactivate the 9th Infantry Division as part of the military build-up. Across the nation, farm boys from the Midwest, surfers from California and city-slickers from Cleveland opened their mail to find greetings from Uncle Sam. Most American soldiers of the Vietnam era trickled into the war zone as individual replacements for men who had become casualties or had rotated home. Charlie Company was different as part of the only division raised, drafted and trained for service. From draft to the battlefields of South Vietnam, this is the unvarnished truth from the fear of death to the chaos of battle, told almost entirely through the recollections of the men themselves. This is their story, the story of young draftees who had done everything that their nation had asked of them and had received so little in return – lost faces of a distant war.
