Tunisian Tales covers the raising of the Brigade in 1941 and training in the UK before their transfer to the Mediterranean theatre of operations. It also covers the three airborne operations carried out by the Brigade there - Bone, Souk-el-Arba and Depienne/Oudna - in great detail. The book is complemented by around 90 photos, many never published before, several maps and coverage of the Airborne Medical Services in the area, besides extensive appendices. Detailed research has been carried out using official reports, war diaries and veterans' accounts. The book has the full approval of 'Airborne Assault', the Museum of the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces at Duxford, and we are delighted that its curator, Jon Baker, has contributed the Foreword. Tunisian Tales represents a notable contribution to new research into the history of Britain's airborne forces. It is being published in a strictly limited edition hardback run of 1,000 copies, each signed by the author and individually numbered. About the Author Niall Cherry was born in London in 1959 and served in the RAMC. He has now written five books - Red Berets and Red Crosses, I Shall Not Find His Equal, Most Unfavourable Ground: The Battle of Loos 1915, With Nothing Bigger than a Bren Gun and Striking Back: Britain's Airborne& Commando Raids 1940-42. He has led various groups around battlefields, contributed articles to After the Battle and Battlefields Review and has helped with around 30 books on the airborne forces and the Great War.
