All Points East

My latest completed proofread for Pen & Sword Books was on another subject somewhat different from my usual ‘beat’, the title in question being ‘A History of Kepstowe Freight’. The company in question was a British one that specialised in sending large loads by lorry into the former Soviet Union, the time period being from the late 1980s through to the early 2000s. The author was Mat Ireland, who did a splendid job in drawing together this unusual story, with the drivers and staff involved talking about what went on. A difficult job at the best of times, made more so by the working environment and some of the people encountered on the way. A very enjoyable and readable account, backed up by a comprehensive set of illustrations. One for many a transport enthusiast’s bookshelf.
