TALKSPORT XMAS GIFT GUIDE The extraordinary story of the rise and fall and rise again of Tyson Fury... THE GYPSY KING. A Manchester lad from Irish Traveller stock, born three months premature and weighing just a pound at birth, Tyson (named after his father's boxing hero) grew up to become one of the most unlikely heavyweight champions in history. This 'dream come true' soon turned to nightmare, however, as alcohol and cocaine abuse took hold and Tyson was stripped of his titles. What followed was the darkest moment of his life - detailed in this book for the first time - in which he came within seconds of ending everything. THE PEOPLE'S CHAMPION. Like all the greatest stories, though, there is redemption and Tyson defies all the odds and literally drags himself to his feet. 10 million people around the globe watched Fury fight Wilder in the biggest fight of the boxing calendar. Speaking candidly about his struggles with mental health, this is Tyson Fury as you have never seen him before.

            Hamish de Bretton-Gordon has devoted his life to fighting the use of chemical weapons and helping those who suffer at their hands. It's a threat that has never been greater - from the attacks against civilians in Syria to the Novichok poisoning on home soil in Salisbury. As Comma...nding Officer of the Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear Defence Regiment, Hamish led the charge against these devastating weapons: launching a military response to anthrax in Iraq, preventing a huge fertiliser bomb explosion in Afghanistan, and suffering a near-death experience himself during a sarin attack. After over 23 years at the heart of the action on the frontline, Hamish discovered he had a heart condition called Sudden Death Syndrome. His doctor advised him to take things easy, but Hamish felt unable to stand by while President Assad began to use weapons against civilians. He flew to Aleppo to provide his expert opinion to doctors on weapons - a harrowing experience that affected him deeply and strengthened his resolve to keep fighting. Lifting the lid on Hamish's unique world of battlefield expertise and humanitarian work, this is not only a professional and military memoir but also a very human story of overcoming extraordinary personal odds.

            By the time he was six years old, Stephen Matthews had been bombarded by the Luftwaffe and deported from occupied Guernsey, along with his family, to a prison camp in the heart of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. He had seen men die in front of him and walked with Jews straight off th...e cattle-trucks from Bergen-Belsen. He had nearly drowned, menaced by Alsatian guard dogs, been beaten by a member of the SS, stranded in a minefield and had his hand broken by a German guard for attempting to feed Russian prisoners. The family kept going through over three of imprisonment, held together by their will to survival and their love for each other. But the island home they eventually returned to had been scarred and stricken by Nazi occupation. The Day the Nazis Came Here is an utterly unique memoir, depicting the world of Nazi prison camps through the eyes of a child - a world in which the real dangers often seemed trivial and every day was a new adventure. Above all, it pays tribute to the preciousness of hope, and shows that human kindness may flower in the unlikeliest of places.
