Peter Scott
For most people, the ' time of their lives ' is sometime in the past: for Peter Scott-it is now. ' I am, without question.' he says, ' the luckiest, and I believe the happiest man I know.'
As well as being the first Vice-President and Chairman of the World Wildlife Fund and Director of the Severn Wildfowl Trust, Peter Scott is a distinguished yachtsman and Klider pilot, a gifted painter and an inveterate explorer. ' That's why,' he says, ' I have every intention of being the first octogenarian on the moon.'

The Warsaw Rising, 1944
On August 1, twenty-five years ago, Russian tanks had pushed the Germans across the river Vistula, which skirts Warsaw to the East. The Polish Underground Army decided that this was their last chance to recapture their own capital. But in the two months and three days that followed, a city the size of Glasgow was razed to the ground and some 250,000 people died.
JOHN TUSA tells this moving and dramatic story with the help of fighters who survived and the words of Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt.

Throughout a year of battle, imprisonment, disease, freezing cold, burning heat, and continuing earthquakes, Florentia Sale, wife of Sir Robert Sale and called ' The Grenadier in Petticoats,' kept a diary of the dangers and discomforts which she endured after having fallen into the hands of Afghan tribesmen during the retreat from Kabul in 1842. Her recently republished story is a textbook example of the courage and endurance of the middle-class Victorian woman moving with determination and disapproval through a disastrous situation. with Mary Wimbush as Florentia Sale
