Steven Tucker is a UK-based writer and independent scholar whose work has appeared in print and online in the US, UK, Australia and Ireland, and who writes the regular ‘Strange Statesmen’ column in Fortean Times magazine, detailing the lives and misdeeds of history’s strangest politicians and military dictators. The author of over ten books about various overlapping fields such as history, politics, economics, science, folklore, mythology, medicine, fringe-beliefs and eccentrics, his most recent works, Nazi UFOs (Frontline/Pen & Sword) and The Saucer and the Swastika (Amberley) debunk and expose the bizarre story of how modern-day neo-Nazi cults invented the lie that Adolf Hitler secretly invented flying saucers, and the racist, neo-Gnostic pseudo-religion the legend helped spawn.

When our own statue-toppling Western culture-warriors seek to empty our museums and metaphorically shoot busts of our own national heroes through the skull here at home, they should consider the implications. Revisionist culture-wars may one day prevent nations from defending themselves properly in real shooting-wars.
