About the author (2002)

Captain Peter Hore served worldwide in the British Royal Navy for nearly 40 years, mostly on frigates and destroyers. During the Falklands War he was joint logistics controller on Ascension Island, and he has headed the Royal Navy's applied and non-technical research programs. His last appointment in uniform was as head of defense studies during the British government's strategic defence review, which involved the rewriting of British maritime strategy and the launch of a new concept of operations - the maritime contribution to joint operations. Peter is now associate editor of Warships International Fleet Review and obituarist for The Daily Telegraph in London. He is the author of many reviews and articles, as well as eight books, including the bestselling Habit of Victory (Sidgwick & Jackson Ltd).
