'The Chinese Attack: Ypres 1917'is the second edition of the 2011 paperback, currently available as a Matador ebook but due for re-issue shortly in paperback format. This will coincide with the centenary of the foundation of the Chinese Labour Corps in early 1917.
John Bishop was born in Heswall on the Wirral and now lives in Codsall near Wolverhampton. Originally an English teacher, he was for six years a College Principal in Birmingham.
'The Chinese Attack', his first novel and originally published by Vanguard in 2011, was inspired by his grandfather's involvement as a sergeant with the Chinese Labour Corps on the Western Front in WW1.
His second novel, 'Love, Freedom or Death', derives from a long-running love affair with Greece. His third novel, 'Refuse to Forget', emerged from a fascination with the way WW1 started aand drew people into a cataclysm they could never have imagined.
