A New Type of War The terrorist faction al Assad (The Lion) has declared war on the United States; launching well- planned attacks in American cities with horrific results. A New Kind of Response Decades earlier, twenty men were selected from the Special Forces community. Their lifetime mission was to abandon their lives and infiltrate the most dangerous terrorist factions abroad, silently bringing them down from the inside. They were code-named Patriots. An Unknown Number of Players Presently, two Patriots resurface with information that could save thousands of lives and a traitor is discovered in the most trusted of places. CIA officer Steve McCallister battles the invisible soldiers of al Assad as he races against the clock to prevent a final act of treachery that could change the course of the entire world. An Uncommon Promise McCallister has two childhood friends, Blake and Pete. Separated by geography and lifestyle, they meet once per year and do not communicate between visits. At the current getaway, McCallister emphatically and mysteriously picks a strange destination for the next rendezvous, promising to be there no matter what happens. Subsequently, attempts are made on all of their lives and the terrorist strikes keep coming.

An American newspaper reporter, Owen OBrien, is on the run in China. Why is he being chased by both the Chinese and the CIA? Who is the beautiful blonde with whom he becomes emotionally entangled? As OBrien attempts to escape along the ancient Silk Road, over the high Himalayas into Pakistan, he carries a terrifying secret crucial to Americas security. This fast paced romantic thriller, dealing with big power politics, corruption in high places and the subversion of the democratic process in America, will grip the reader from beginning to end! REVIEW EXPATICA MAGAZINE, EUROPE Expats have an advantage when writing fiction; doing unusual things in exotic places is often part of the experience of living and working outside your native country. Dutch resident Bernard W. Rees takes us to the Philippines in The Manila Galleon and to China, along the Silk Road and over the Himalayas into Pakistan in The Last Patriot. Born in Llanelli in Wales, Rees has seen his fair share of the world. He grew up in Kampala, Uganda and Nairobi in Kenya. At sixteen he went to sea and got his first taste of the Orient. He emigrated to Canada in his early 20s where he traded ships and cargo for many years, from "the Americas to the Persian Gulf, China, Japan and Korea". Following the death of his first wife in 1995, Rees decided he needed "to change my life and do something new". He sold his shipping business and moved to Manila, where, in his spare time, he searched for Spanish treasure ships. This is when he developed another talent: he pens a good yarn. The main character of The Manila Galleon is Peter de Vries, a rogue CIA agent. Of course rogue CIA agents are common in thrillers these days, and one who has lost his memory isnt that original either. But what really matters is that Rees makes something of this character in this page-turning thriller, with a twist. De Vries gets involved in the salvage of a 17th century Spanish treasure ship, while at the same time he must avoid the CIA and discover the significance of his dreams about the Galleon and its fatal encounter with Dutch privateers. The sole survivor was a Dutch prisoner, Captain Jeroen de Vries. Rees wrote his second novel while living in the US from 2003 to 2005. The CIA is there again but this time the main setting is China. This book is heavier than Galleons as it deals with the "major problems facing the world today": energy security, terrorism and the looming potential of conflict between the US and China. The hero, if that is the correct term, is Owen O Brien, a cynical, alcoholic journalist and the heroine is an idealistic young doctor working with orphaned AIDS children in China. Written as a memoir to his daughter, the book recounts how OBrien comes into possession of secret documents outlining a plan to attack the US. The CIA, which will never hire Rees to do its PR, is again the bad guy as it joins forces with the Chinese to stop OBrien fleeing with the papers. If this was Hollywood, the hero would save the day at the last minute. But Rees, a world-wise expat, doesnt go for sugar-coated endings. Not to give too many secrets away, Reese wrote a second, Hollywood ending for Galleons to "maintain the domestic peace" with his wife. The Last Patriot has a more open ending. Reese opened yet another new chapter in his life when he moved to the Netherlands as the trailing spouse at the beginning of 2006. The couples teenage children enrolled in the international school in Arnhem and their youngest is attending Dutch elementary school. This expat author is now working on a series of books about an American living in Paris. We will eagerly await publication.

The Patriot class, often referred to as 'Baby Scots', were an immediate success displaying consistently good performance. The class was withdrawn over a two year period between 1960 and 1962 having all covered around 1.3 million miles each, unfortunately too early to be considered for preservation. The last two withdrawn were in good condition on withdrawal, but unfortunately all were scrapped.Although no Patriot in either rebuilt or unrebuilt forms survived into preservation a new 'Patriot' is under construction at the Llangollen Railway. The LMS-Patriot Project, a registered charity, is appealing for donations or regular contributions to build the new, 3 cylinder, Fowler designed, parallel boiler, 4-6-0 express passenger loco.Although mostly new, the group will use the leading wheel sets from two LMS 8F locomotives. An unrestored surviving LMS Fowler tender from Woodham Brothers Barry scrap yard will also be used for the project. The new build Patriot is being assembled at the Llangollen Railway Works, and will carry the number of the last built - LMS number 5551 or British Railways number 45551. After a public poll, the new Patriot locomotive will be named The Unknown Warrior, whose tomb is located in Westminster Abbey.The new Royal British Legion backed engine will be launched in late 2011 or early 2012 and this is the only 'official' book of the project. Containing hundreds of new, never before published photographs, British Steam - Patriot will tell the story of the engine from its original concept, follow its production throughout the building period and also its launch.The book will be endorsed by the Royal British Legion and promoted to all its members. This will be a must for all railway enthusiasts.
