Jean Hood is an acclaimed writer and historian who formerly worked as Information Officer at Lloyd's Register of Shipping and has published widely on maritime and naval subjects. Her work typically focuses on human stories of conflict and tragedy, incorporating eyewitness accounts and detailed research to cast new light on historical incidents. Her first nonfiction book,Marked for Misfortune (Conway), concerned the wreck of the East Indiaman Winterton. She is also the author ofTrafalgar Square (Batsford), Come Hell and High Water (Burford Books; published in paperback asWreck) and the highly praised anthologies Submarine and Carrier (both Conway). Her latest project, War Correspondent (Lyons Press), accompanies a major IWM exhibition and was published in May 2011.


Based on the popular BBC TV series, Dig WW2 takes an archeological journey through the Allied battle for Europe, unearthing such treasures as a Spitfire buried in a Donegal peat bog and a sealed bunker on a D-Day beach. Delving deeply into these stories, Jean Hood reveals neglected, forgotten, and secretive accounts of Britain's relationship with “neutral” Ireland and America, the program of “starfish sites,” and the mystery of the launch ramps pointing at London. The result is thoroughly engrossing.
