COURT MARTIAL_cover_Jul11.indd

Geoff Craven’s 30 years in the Canadian Forces (of which the first 20 years were spent in the Navy as a pilot and ship-driver) qualify him to write knowledgeably and authentically about flying from Canada’s naval aircraft carriers in the Cold War years.  His subsequent career in the Public Service and consulting for major defence and information technology contractors gave him detailed knowledge of the Canadian government’s complex procurement processes; and as a project manager for Expo 86, Craven is well aware of the pitfalls lying in wait for project managers.  Court Martial, his first book, starts with the excitement of aircraft carrier flying operations and builds dramatically through a major aircraft replacement competition to the Kafkaesque military trial of Craven’s protagonist – a brilliant but arrogant naval project manager.  Complexities of the trial and its denouement provide unforgettable psycho-drama.
