Armageddon's Song volume 1 'Stand - To'

Armageddon's Song is a trilogy telling the story of a Third World War and the people, and units, on both sides of the conflict.

This story includes the allied nations rather than just giving them a passing nod whilst concentrating on the US and its efforts to defeat the red peril.

'Stand - To' is military parlance for "Grab your guns boys, somethings not right!" and Volume 1, unsurprisingly, deals with the discovery of a plot and the West's scramble to face the threat.

Having published the book I received a message on Facebook from a lady who explained that her 12 year old was an avid reader of military fiction but the mention of a sexy spy well versed in seduction had put her off, so I did a little editing and published a slightly shorter abridged edition to the original.

The book is available on Kindle.

About the author.

Andy Farman was born in Cheshire, England in 1956 into a close family of servicemen and servicewomen who at that time were serving or who had served in the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy and British Army.
As a 'Pad brat' he was brought up on whichever RAF base his Father was posted to.
He joined the British Army as an Infantry Junior Leader in 1972 at the tender age of 15, serving in the Coldstream Guards on ceremonial duties at the Royal Palaces, flying the flag in Africa, and on operations in both Ulster and on the UK mainland.
In 1981 Andy swapped his green suit for a blue one with the Metropolitan Police.
With volunteer reservist service in both the Wessex Regiment and 253 Provost Company, Royal Military Police (V) he spent twenty four years in front line policing, both in uniform and plain clothes. The final six years as a police officer were served in a London inner city borough and wearing two hats, those of an operation planner, and liaison officer with the television and film industry.

His first literary work to be published was that of a poem about life as a soldier in Ulster, sold with all rights to a now defunct writers monthly in Dublin for the princely sum of £11 (less the price of the stamp on the envelope that the cheque arrived in.)

The 'Armageddon's Song' trilogy began as a mental exercise to pass the mornings whilst engaged on a surveillance operation on a drug dealer who never got out of bed until the mid afternoon.
