When producing a documentary in 1994 I was privileged to film the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium. It was one of the most moving experiences imaginable.While there, I met the remarkable Bill Stone, Harry Patch and Henry Allingham - the last British survivors of the war. It was the beginning of a personal journey that eventually led me to write Shadow War. To mark the release of the book, Lucy & I have just taken our twin boys to Ypres.
