James Follett was the first British author in the Gulf just after the end of Desert Storm, and he also smuggled himself into Northern Iraq via Turkey during the abortive Kurdish uprising in 1991. His minibus was attacked by an Iraqi helicopter gunship and he ended up in Kurdish hospital.

Dave's comment 

This is a book that made me do some research into Savants and their time keeping, ( and other feats that they are capable of doing ) DW just to see if the author had been wrong in anyway, ( damm his research is good ) DW The fact that it was placed during the Gulf War just adds to the story. Then the BBC showing a program about Savants brought home just how good James Follett's research was. This is a book that would make a good radio play or a very expensive film, all those tanks you know.
