Featured author – Dave Hayward
Dave Hayward joined the army aged sixteen years and remained a soldier for thirty-three years, seeing active service in Borneo during Indonesia’s ‘Confrontation’ with Malaysia and in South Vietnam. When Dave retired as Sergeant Major of the Army, he took up writing and using his experiences and the wealth of history at his fingertips, he has produced eight novels.
His first-hand knowledge of the world of the twentieth century Infantry soldier is recognised as unique — he is regularly invited to address students at the Centre for Defence and Security Studies at Massey University.
