Welcome to my website; here you will find the articles, features and essays I have written over the years on all sorts of historical subjects, particularly military history. Please take the time to dip into the other sections: Other articles, MA work, and Family History. I'm sure there will be features to inform, amuse and interest you all.
If you use any of the articles for your research, then please at least reference me. If you have any questions or spot any glaring typos, please feel free to contact me at: email@example.com
***Please note that the transfer of content from the old website to the new website is now complete. However, I will be re-editing many of the features hosted on The Historical Eye over the coming months. Articles currently being revamped are: Horses and Mules; The Christmas Truce 1914; Mountain Fury; and Broken Lances and Bloody Sabres. Some accessibility may be affected by this***

L P Hartley famously wrote: 'The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there'. That's certainly true: history can be fascinating and strange, familiar and alien. History is also lighthouse; it warns us to avoid the rocks on which others were dashed.
