New book contract with Osprey

I’ve recently signed a contract with Osprey, the military history publisher, to write a book focusing on the battles and sieges that took place during the war of French invasion in England 1216-17. It’s tentatively entitled The Battles That Saved England, though that might change as we go on. I’m hugely excited by being able to go back to my roots as as historian of war and combat, and to go into great detail on matters such as armour, weapons, tactics and siege machinery, to say nothing of revisiting all my favourite contemporary chroniclers!
