The houses on my street are modern; but they are built on Musto's Field, the name a corruption of 'Moot-Stow', a medieval village meeting place. The unremarkable woodland overlooking the garden is a remnant of the primeval Great North Wood which became Norwood. A wood notorious for outlaws, gypsies, hermits and other strange folk.
Our River Effra runs was diverted into an underground sewer a century ago. What hidden creatures flop and scuttle down there, what unhallowed Things are buried beneath those old oak trees, trees untouched since Druids sacrificed beneath them? I mused, and Shadows from Norwood crawled forth...

US Special Forces routinely use portable Switchblade killer drones in Afghanistan. ISIS drop grnades from modified consumer drones. Thousands of drones can already be flown together by a single operator.
Swarm Troopers tells the exciting and terrifying truth about the drone revolution: how small, cheap drones bring unprecedent destructive power to the battlefield, making manned aircraft obsolete.
Find out now who the winders and losers will be in the next wave of military innovation which will turn the established order upside down, as hundred-million-dollar jets face swarms of cheap flying robots.
Your guide in this entertaining and informative journey is technology journalist David Hambling (WIRED, Popular Mechanics, Aviation Week) who mixes history, curious anecdote and surprising statistics with penetrating analysis. He shows how drone swarms are evolving the ultimate weapon: precise, deadly and unstoppable . And why no existing defense can handle them.
Swarm Troopers looks at the history of drone warfare, the rise of big drones like the Predator and how they are being eclipsed by smaller unmanned aircraft. And how the future is being shaped by consumer electronics, swarm software, miniaturised munitions and energy-harvesting that allows small drones to fly forever.
What will drone swarms will mean for the balance of power and future wars? Who will be the winners and losers? The answers may surprise you.
Swarm Troopers are coming. Are we ready for them?
