Under the blazing Iraqi sun in the summer of 2007, Shannon Meehan, a lieutenant in the U.­S. Army, ordered a strike that would take the lives of innocent Iraqi civilians.

At the height of World War II, five hundred Army flight nurses served with the Army Air Forces as members of thirty-­one medical air evacuation squadrons located throughout the world on both the European and Pacific fronts. Their work was not insignificant—over one million patients were evacuated by air between January 1943 and May 1945. These specially trained Army nurses took nursing to new heights. Often decorated for their accomplishments, they exemplify the ability of a group of nurses to cope successfully with the challenges of war.­In her comprehensive book, author Judith Barger brings together information that is becoming less accessible as the former nurses succumb to age, infirmity, and death. Barger interviewed twenty-­five of these pioneering women in 1986 when their recall of their service experiences was still vivid and informative. Building on Barger’s earlier research, their stories and the numerous complementary photographs included in the volume bring to life this . . .

Noel’s fifth book tells the stories of the brave men and women who render
safe unexploded bombs, mines, and other explosive nasties wherever they
come to light in this country and abroad, on land and in the oceans of the
world.

In the UK the Luftwaffe dropped 500,­000 bombs and mines,­45,­000 of which did not detonate. Many were fitted with time delay fuses, and a few were duds.

Casualties were high, the Army lost over 400 officers and men,
the Navy 22 and the Airforce 14, mainly in the UK. World wide 153 were
killed from the three services.

No accurate figures seem available to indicate the number severely injured; amputees etc. but these figures were and are still very high.

Noel passed away just as this book was been printed. As with his earlier books his royalties will go to Sheffield's Weston Park Cancer Hospital.

Beyond the Call of Duty is a screenplay. What if Ghost had an in-­life happy ending? Beyond the Call of Duty takes elements of Ghost, Quantum Leap and The Incredible Hunk and combines them into a love story and drama. Beyond the Call of Duty is intended as a two hour preview to a series which adds the element of The Fugitive. The “Twist”? The hero returns to life in the body of his killer. The body is guilty and pursed while the soul is innocent.
This is the story of Ike, a policeman killed in the line of duty, who comes back as a ghost who can only be seen and heard by Charlie, a seemingly insane homeless man horribly disfigured in Vietnam who had passed half-­way through to the other world and is thus able to see ghosts. Ike and Charlie team up to go “undercover” to fight crime, to protect Ike’s family and to discover Ike’s killer.
