    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.

  5. Done.

    3 out of 3 correct with two googles.

    Thread closed.
     
  6. Never judge a book by its cover they say.

    Something his publishers must live by.

    It would have been easier and quicker to buy the book :scratch:. Still fingers crossed and all that.

  9. Any more language like that will result in a thread ban and will negate any claim to a book.

    Disgusting...
