    Chris Tarrant, of Who Wants to be a Millionaire fame has written a book about his father's war. The book came about from a TV programme in which Tarrant was taken back to look at his father's career and realised how little he actually knew about his own Dad.Taken from discussions with former comrades who went through the trials and tribulations, Tarrant has brought us a story of a brave infantry officer, Major Basil Avery Tarrant MC.

    There are 6 copies up for grabs and as ever to have a chance of winning one of these copies, just complete the short questionnaire correctly. The entry form can be found here: Dad's War.

    The competition will run until Sunday 6th July and will close sometime on that day!

    The book has been reviewed, and that review can be found by clicking here:
