Tony McNally is a Falklands War veteran and the author of Still Watching Men Burn.
A tireless campaigner for better understanding and treatment of servicemen and women suffering from mental health problems like PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
After leaving the forces he was diagnosed with PTSD by a civilian doctor and was at first unable to talk about his wartime experiences, he was told to go home and try and write down his thoughts and feelings. He soon realized that writing was therapeutic and began to write poetry and short stories, Screaming in Silence is his first book of poetry and a short story about the First World War.
Written from the heart this is a powerful collection of works that can only be written by someone that has experienced the brutality of war and man’s inhumanity, which is apparent with his colorful and brutal and then at times beautiful, poignant, and gentle words.
He covers a wide range of subject matter, Politics, murder, homelessness, divorce, Religion and obviously War, McNally hits the listeners with the ferocity of an exploding grenade then the gentleness of a poppy petal blowing gracefully in the summer breeze.
