"well, well, well, here we are"
Welcome to my blog - 'historian at large'
I decided to set this up on a whim, and in a fit of vanity...
I hope to use it to air my views and vent my spleen on issues and events related to history, especially those in my area of specialism - World War Two in Europe, Nazi Germany and Central Europe.
I also aim to post a few of my old book reviews on here, to stimulate and inform (with luck)
About me -
I am 39 and a professional freelance historian, living in the UK. I was the co-author of "Microcosm" - the history of the Polish city of Wroclaw (the former German "Breslau")
... and am the author of "Killing Hitler" (2006) - the first thorough-going study of the various attempts to kill Adolf Hitler. "Killing Hitler" is already in (I think) eight languages and the Spanish edition "Matar a Hitler" will be published later this week.
I am a regular commentator and book reviewer for the national and specialist press and have appeared a number of times on national television and radio. They keep inviting me back, so I imagine they must think I am vaguely presentable...
If you want to get in touch, please do. If you have any queries or requests, I will do my best to help out if I can.
In the meantime, check back regularly, and have a look at my books on Amazon... ;-)
