The tributes I have received during the 53-years of political struggle, Mike Kampf as my wife calls it, are invariably respectful and complimentary and are a great source of pride for me.
Why live one life when by purchasing and reading books and novels you can live as many lives as you wish? You can accompany explorers, share the fields of conflict with the servicemen of many nationalities. You can fall in love with beautiful women and travel, solve crimes and be a part of any unfolding drama. Dilemma: With millions of titles available our problem as book buyers is to discover a novel that will turn us into a Paige Turner.
Michael Walsh, historian, and journalist, never found enough time to be a novelist until during the 1990s when, down to his last brass cent, he wondered if salvation might come via a novel. The dissident journalist put pen to paper and began work on Retribution which later was re-titled A Leopard in Liverpool. The novel was finally published a year or so ago and was accompanied by a low-key promotion.
It is a little over seventy years since the combined forces of the British, Soviet and American empires crushed the Anti-Capitalist Anti-Communist workers revolt otherwise known as Hitler’s Third Reich.
MICHAEL WALSH ex-seafarer, nomad and author of seafaring books is more aware than most of the awesome size and depths of the earth’s great seas. After all, the once British seaman on reaching his 26th birthday had travelled to over 60 countries, visited hundreds of ports many several times over.
THE STIGMA ENIGMA Michael Walsh Double-crossed in love, former mercenary Jack Scarlett has the sinister sinners of Liverpool’s underworld in his cross-hairs. Detective Chief Inspector Eric Jansen vows to stop his high-octane lethal feud. Detective Chief Inspector Eric Jansen stop Jack Scarlett, and does he really want to?
Did you ever pause when reading a passage or a quote that jolted your senses when you were reading whatever book was in your lap? The veteran writer Michael Walsh over the years occasionally did so. Unable or unwilling to let an inspiring passage slip like moon dust through his fingers he assiduously kept those sayings he thought of special merit.
As a writer-researcher I constantly search for the one story that changes everything. Scanning an independent report I realised I had finally struck gold. According to Hawaii-based R. J. Rummel’s, Power, Genocide and Mass Murder, Journal of Peace Research, no less than 170 million people were butchered by government during the 20th Century.
In the late 1970s, the then STAR newspaper described Michael Walsh as ‘Britain’s most dangerous man’. Unless one can identify with the mindset of a far-left journalist it is impossible to figure out why such an extreme expression.
Europe’s de-colonisation of Africa is generally accepted as the price paid for transfer of power from White to Black rule. Not true: the concept of African independence was a massive deception on a par with that of the so-called Russian Revolution, which was nothing of the kind either. Both regime changes transferred power not to the peoples of Russia or Africa, but to a global banking and corporate cabal. This is easily achieved when the global camarilla set the agenda and the ground is prepared.
