Rupert Wieloch’s new book, Liberating Libya, colourfully charts the relatively underknown history of Libya and its relationship with Britain.  Bringing to bear the author’s full foreign policy expertise, personal knowledge of Libya and extensive research, it is a professionally-told piece that offers both sharp ...

Ancient Greeks at War: Simon Elliott Interview

Ancient Greeks at War: Simon Elliott Interview

Simon Elliott, the epic clashes of the Trojan War described by Homer are our only real literary reference to the Mycenaean period of warfare – how would you best describe this version of Greek war?In one word, confusing! Here we first have to overcome the uncertainty created by Homer most likely writing his Iliad and Odyssey in the 8th century BC at the beginning of the ...

Alan Brooke: The Unknown Field Marshal

Alan Brooke: The Unknown Field Marshal

I became interested in the formidable character of Alan Brooke when researching for other books, and in the Kew National Archives stumbled upon references which at first sight were totally contradictory. On the one hand there is the ornithological fanatic with close friends, a wife and family he adored, and on the other side a person whom men like Montgomery and Mountbatten were cautious ...
Generalship from Marlborough to Wellington

Generalship from Marlborough to Wellington

Never easy, the assessment of generalship becomes more difficult when you go back in time and the sources are less extensive. All-too-often the discussion becomes that of battles lost and won as in Hannibal must be good because he won at Cannae or Napoleon at Austerlitz.

Ancient Greeks At War

Ancient Greeks At War

I grew up with a passion for the worlds of ancient Greece and Rome, and fondly remember drawing my first Roman chariot with wax crayons on old computer print out paper aged about five! That love of all things ancient translated into something of an obsession as an adult, hence my son being called Alexander! Later in life I have now realized my dream of being a best selling and award-winning ...
Liberating Libya

Liberating Libya

Writing history in a post-feminist era, when readers are especially alert to issues of social and racial justice, requires a sensitive approach to modern opinions. Authors today have to accept that many influential academics are highly critical of government authority and that public organisations are responding to the so-called “culture wars” by revising attitudes to the past. For example, ...

Appointment in Tehran

Appointment in Tehran

  In his apartment several blocks from the university campus, Abdul Mezad knelt on a carpet facing the Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina and prayed. He was one of the few people in the city who knew what was about to happen. Although the Shah had been overthrown and the revolutionary republic proclaimed months earlier, there was still an
