The origin of Pen & Sword Books is closely linked with its sister company, the Barnsley Chronicle; one of the UK’s oldest provincial newspapers – established in 1858 – and one of the few weeklies still in private ownership.
The first books published by the company were in response to public demand following of a series of articles published in the newspaper:- Dark Peak Aircraft Wrecks told the story of crash sites in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park, and a further weekly feature on the history of two Kitchener battalions, known as the Barnsley Pals, aroused a thirst for more information. Over the years these books have been reprinted a number of times and have collectively sold around 20,000 copies.
Following on from the success of Dark Peak Wrecks and Barnsley Pals books, a number of local history paperbacks were produced along with a series of battlefield guide books. Battleground Europe proved immediately successful and as more and more titles were produced the company made the decision to launch a book publishing arm of the group.
Sharpe Books publishes both new and established writers. Our list of authors and estates include Clement Attlee, Saul David, Michael Jecks, Adam Zamoyski, and Peter Tonkin. Our focus is on publishing Historical Fiction, Crime/Thrillers, Biographies and History titles. As well as publishing new books, we also specialise in re-publishing and re-promoting previously published works, where rights have reverted to the author or estate.
