I am a writer and academic in the UK.  You can find out more about me here, and read about my latest book, Peace At Last: A Portrait of Armistice Day, 11 November 1918, which was published by Yale University Press in October 2018.  Yale University Press also published my biography of Wilfred Owen in 2014, and I am a General Editor of Edward Thomas’s prose for Oxford University Press.  An Associate Professor in English Literature and Head of the School of Humanities at Liverpool Hope University, I live on the Wirral, grew up in the Midlands and studied at St Andrews and Oxford.

‘[a] brilliant portrayal of Britain on the day that peace broke out, when people could believe there was an end to the war to end all wars. He weaves a wonderful tapestry of the mood and events across the country, drawing on a wide range of local and regional newspapers. It is accessible history at its best. […] outstanding’
