Mark Green

Mark was born and bred in Worcestershire, where he still lives with his wife Victoria and 5-year-old daughter, Isabelle. He obtained a degree in history at the University of Central Lancashire in 1997, followed by a PGCE in secondary history in 2000. He has been teaching at a Special Needs School in Worcester since 2004 and is now the Assistant Headteacher there. He is the subject leader for both history and geography.

Military history is his passion, and in 2014, he started the website, which is now, which has a strong following all around the world.

He is also a sports fan being a big supporter of Manchester Utd (for his sins) and used to play cricket until his legs couldn’t take it anymore.

Stan Hollis VC: The Man They Couldn't Kill is the story of Stanley Elton Hollis VC, the only recipient of the Victoria Cross for his gallantry on D-Day – 6 June 1944. Stan’s life was full of numerous acts of gallantry both whilst in the Army but also in civilian life.

The book will tell of Stan’s humble beginnings in North Yorkshire, to serving in several theatres of war around the world in World War II, to his post-war life as a pub landlord, battling with the physical and mental scars of his experiences, which would ultimately, and sadly lead to his premature death aged just 59. Stan was a proud man who believed his regiment deserved more plaudits than he did and was loyal to his principles right to the end. This is Stan’s story.
