Martin Mahle's new military history book "The lonesome Commander" is available from now on!
First military history book ever covering Brigadier Tony Wilson's Falklands War story!
Only one man remained completely ignored: Brigadier Sir Mathew John Anthony Wilson, OBE, MC.
Why the brigadier (one-star general), who was honoured for his Northern Ireland tours with the OBE and the MC in the 1970s, was denied any awards for his time as commanderof the 5th Infantry Brigade in the Falklands War, will be clarified in this book.
It is the first publication ever, dealing with this subject!
The book is available in English language, ISBN 978-3-86991-
The author Martin Mahle was born in 1966 on the Isle of Lindau in the Lake of Constance. After completing his apprenticeship as a banker, he also completed his part-time studies as a bank economist. From 1985 on he worked for an internationally reknown banking group in Lindau, Regensburg, Günzburg and Munich. At present he works for this bank as a relationship manager for corporates in Augsburg and lives, with his wife and children, in Neusäss.
While serving with the German Army's 1st Mountain Division the German Federal Armed Forces medal of honour was awarded to him in late 1988.
He is also known for his two espionage-thrillers "Geheimnisvolles schwarzes Gold" ("Mysterious black Gold") and "Neujahr" ("New Year").
