Ice Hockey (1936) by Major BM Patton - Annotated & Illustrated 2020: A facsimile reprint of the original 1936 edition with new introduction, author biography and appendices.

An annotated and illustrated reprint of the original 1936 work by Patton, this new 2020 edition includes: 

A new introduction 

A new biography of BM Patton 

A new section about the Patton Cup 

A new section about the EIHL Patton Conference 

Two new appendices 

And 10 new photographs

As well as the complete original text and content.

With the benefits and facilities of modern technology, and in a move that we hope that Patton himself would have heartily approved of, we have decided to make his book – which has been practically impossible to get hold of for over 70 years without shelling out a small fortune to a rare book dealer – available to everybody at a reasonable selling price, which we hope they will enjoy reading.

Wilfred Owen: Centenary Featuring: Brief Owen Biography, Wilfred Owen And Me, Wilfred Owen in Print, Birkenhead Commemorations

Wilfred Owen’s initial collection of poems was first published in December 1920 – two years after his death at the end of the First World War – and now in 2020, we are celebrating the centenary of that landmark publication with a publication of our own!

The first thing that needs pointing is out is that this NOT a full and formal biography of Wilfred Owen - nor is it an attempt at a collection of his poems - or any sort of critique thereof. This is essentially the story of Paul and Lucy’s journey from first becoming involved with the Wilfred Owen Story via the Bullets & Daffodils musical show and their odyssey that took them to all sorts of interesting places and brought them into contact with some fascinating people.

If you read this book, you WILL find out about Owen’s life and you WILL find out about his poems. And, unless, you are already an “Owen expert”, you will probably end up knowing more about him than you did before.

There’s a large section about Birkenhead – where Owen spent most of his formative years and quite often gets overlooked forgotten about with all the attention being pointed at Oswestry, Shrewsbury, Dunsden and Ors - and how the town marked the centenary of his death, plus a lot of other things besides.

There’s also a brief guide to Owen–related sites around Birkenhead that you can go and see for yourself and be able to appreciate some of the surroundings that helped shape the world’s best known war poet.
