Welcome to my website, which gives information on my book, In the Steps of the Black Prince, the Road to Poitiers 1355 -1356, plans for future books, media activity and tours of the Poitiers battlefield.

It also gives you the chance to get in touch with questions or comments relating to the book, the Battle of Poitiers, the military history of the reign of Edward III, or wider issues concerning the Hundred Years War. I am happy to answer questions or point you in the right direction if I don’t have the answer. I would be particularly pleased to have any comments or information relating to one of my forthcoming projects: John of Gaunt and the Great March of 1373 when he led an army from Calais to Bordeaux.
