Lions, Donkeys and Dinosaurs by Lewis Page
Book DescriptionIn this irreverent and provocative book, Lewis Page exposes the scandalous state of our armed forces: how British soldiers are sent off to war with some of the worst guns around, how the MOD keeps financing useless toys (at huge expense to taxpayers), and how decisions seem to be made with an eye, above all, for the interests of British Aerospace. He shows how politicians and the top brass are hopelessly entrenched in yesterday's wars and pouring their talents and energies into making sure that money is wasted right, left and centre.

Author Biography - Lewis Page
Lewis Page began his military career as a reservist pilot in the Cambridge University Air Squadron and ended up in the Navy, where he became a mine clearance diver. After eight years at sea, mostly in very bad weather, he was put in charge of the Plymouth diving and bomb disposal team and trawled the British coastline from Swanage to Liverpool neutralizing 'improvised Explosive Devices' and searching for unexploded ordnance. As such, he is one of the few in the British forces to have actually seen and dealt with 'Weapons of Mass Destruction', although irritatingly these were of British manufacture. During a dull period in the navy he qualified as a commando. He resigned from the Service in 2004 and now lives in London.
