The Author

Terence Parker was born in India in 1939, the son of an infantry bandmaster. After short stays in the post-war devastation of London and in Warwick, his family settled in Swansea where he attended Bishop Gore Grammar School.

In 1957, after achieving top marks in the Armed Services Entrance Examination, he entered the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Commissioned into the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, he gained an Honours Degree in Electrical Engineering before serving in a variety of appointments in the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.

In 1983, shortly after remote but focal involvement in the Falklands Campaign as the Equipment Manager of Army Guided Weapons, he left the Army to become an administrator at Imperial College in London. Whilst there, he decided to investigate the fundamental cause of war. He completed his purely private research in 1986: a time when few people were interested in war.

In 1989, he rejoined the Ministry of Defence as a civilian, just in time to help prepare Britain’s tanks for the first Gulf War. Now retired, he has time to review his research and remember many battlefield visits: Waterloo, Ypres, Gallipoli, Shiloh, Gettysburg, the Indian Mutiny flashpoints and the banks of the Little Bighorn River, to name but a few.
