David Flintham is a military historian specialising in 17th century sieges and fortifications. For 20 years, he has been investigating London's defences during the English Civil Wars and is now considered to be the expert on London's Civil War fortifications. His research has culminated in two books - London in the Civil War (2008) and The English Civil War Defences of London (2014) - and numerous articles. He has also researched the military-themed works of the Prague-born engraver Wenceslas Hollar, and has contributed a chapter to a new academic study: Perspectives on Wenceslaus Hollar. A firm believer in the value of 'field' history - and the influence of the landscape upon the historical event - much of his research is undertaken by actually visiting and exploring sites; he was elected a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 2011. He has researched, visited and written on fortifications throughout the British Isles, across Europe and as far afield as North America and South Africa. A member of the Fortress Study Group, he regularly contributes to its journals. David lives and works in London.

Reviews for Civil War London: A Military History of London Under Charles I and Oliver Cromwell

The relevant chapters of this book would have given us a far better understanding of the situation and the part played by London in both the defeat of Charles I and the Restoration. I would, therefore, recommend anyone studying the Civil War in school to read them. * Miniature Wargames - Arthur Harman * Anyone, not just military historians, with an interest in London would profit from these pages, and Flintham is to be congratulated on putting together such a mass of information in such an accessible form. * Military History Monthly *
