His Gentlemen of the Blade: A Social and Literary History of the British Army (Greenwood/Praeger, 1989) is a standard source. The novels in his Faust Legacy Quartet (Elysium/Wingspan, 2008), although fictional, find their origins in the author's experiences in dangerous places, from West Germany at the height of the Cold War, to Cyprus after the Time of Troubles, and Kashmir, still a tinderbox.
