My interests centre on British military history, especially since the late-nineteenth century. I teach several courses in that area, as well as a general course on British overseas and diplomatic history since 1870.
I am currently writing an analysis of British military policy in the post war era, Army, Empire and Cold War: British Military Policy, c 1945 - 1970.
