I’m a Lecturer in Modern British History at Queen Mary University of London. I specialise in the social, cultural and military history of Britain in the two world wars, with a particular emphasis on the memory and remembrance of war. In 2006 I was Times Higher Educational Supplement Young Academic Author of the Year for my book, The Great War, Myth and Memory. I’m currently working on a new general history of Britain in the Second World War.

This is the updated, WordPress powered version of an academic blog that I’ve been running for about three years. My aim has been to make use of what I think is a vitally important new resource for academics, to spark some debates and to have some fun. All views are my own, rather than those of my institution. I post up a variety of stuff relating to my various academic interests. All comments are gratefully received.
