Produktbeschreibung
"I'm not a coward, but when 11 inch shells come screaming at you, well I know why the Navy supply two pairs of pants."

If you like Max Hastings and World War Two naval history then you will love this autobiography which gives an easy to read insider view of life in the Royal Navy during the war.

Ronnie Turner had set his sights on a career with the Royal Navy and like Ant Middleton, he wouldn't stop until he'd achieved his goal of having 'a smack at the boche'.

His quest plucked him from his home in Liverpool and led him to the exotic temptations of Rio, freezing Falkland storms and searching for a heavily armed German raider in a rowing boat with six scousers and a padre.

Drawn from Ronnie's illegal war diary and illustrated with never seen before photographs of life on board a Royal Navy heavy cruiser, this enjoyable tale of pocket battleships, torpedoed crews and Admiral Harwood's tattoo's, all sprinkled with Spike Milligan like humour, make this a story you won't want to put down.

Autorenporträt
Johnny Parker is a bit of a latecomer to the writing party, but that means he has a whole goody bag of experience to pour into his writing.

Influenced by British comedy from Boys from the Blackstuff to Only Fools and Horses, Johnny likes to find the humour in real life and balance the funny with the sad.

Labelled a scatterbrain by his 1960's Headmistress, Johnny has turned the insult into inspiration and has published kids picture books, joke books, a war biography and now a serial comedy based in a betting shop. Not so much writing to market as writing to life.

Success has done a knock and run on Johnny's door, winning an award for a short comedy film and several short story prizes. He's had a comedy play produced and he even had the Museum of Liverpool Life include his quotes on some of their exhibits.

Johnny's feature film screenplay Freak House, was one of only a small number of scripts chosen to be critiqued by Hollywood script guru Karl Iglesias at the London Screenwriters Festival. This time next year (Rodney), he might just be a millionaire.
