Barry Turner, Tony Rennell - Authors


Barry Turner is a writer and historian. His latest books are Beacon for Change about the 1951 Festival of Britain and Outpost of Occupation on the German occupation of the Channel Islands. He has just completed his seventeenth year as editor of Statesman's Yearbook. He lives in London and south-west France. Tony Rennell was a senior editorial executive on the Sunday Times and the Mail on Sunday before switching to writing 15 years ago. He is the author and co-author of seven books, of which When Daddy Came Home was the first. He writes regularly on a variety of subjects for the Daily Mail. He lives in Suffolk. He was born in 1947, the son of a father who came home but never spoke about his war. 'When I told him I was writing this book, he was silent. After he died, I was told that he had read it and, most unusually for him, wept. But, to me, typically, he said not a word.'
