Leading military historian and broadcaster Saul David joins us in the Bookshop to talk about his new book All The King’s Men; a fascinating study of the extraordinary one and a half centuries of British martial success from the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 to the Downfall of Napoleon in 1815.

Britain won a series of major wars against France that enabled her to lay the foundations of a global empire. By Waterloo, she was the paramount maritime and industrial power in the world, and would remain so for much of the nineteenth century.

Saul’s previous ¬†books have gathered much critical acclaim, and All The King’s Men promises the same high standard of historical scholarship.
