Word of War by Terrence Strong is a novel set during the Arab Spring of 2011 and deals with an SAS unit operating in the country and a reporter trying to cover it all. The sub-title for the book is "The unrelenting battle between the Pen and the Sword".

The questions have been set by the author, the multi choice have been added by me. Your task is to work out which is correct which will need a bit of google-fu. I have tried to make the answers reasonably obvious but it will be interesting to see how you guys approach this.

The competition can be entered through here: Word of War

There are three copies available as prizes and the competition will run until Sunday 17th December (ish).

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

So the competition is not the cheapest, most patch n pasted n photoshopped cover of the year?

Mr Strong's wife's nephew's 11yr old would have won that :razz:

This competition will run for another 24 hours or so as I am away from home, my tablet has busted (let's hope Santa is good to me) and I don't have the Survey Monkey login details on my phone.

Monday afternoon will see the results put up, so if you have not yet had a go then now is your chance.
