David Miller

David Miller served in the British Army from 1956 to 1991 but took early retirement to become a journalist and to write books. He has had over 40 books published on subjects ranging from the Samurai through the Battle of Waterloo to the Cold War, and from a shipwreck in the Falkland Islands to the Crusades. Working on the latter book revived his interest in Richard the Lionheart, one of the greatest warrior-kings England has ever known.
