    I have an interest in various aspects of World War 2, particularly the poetry of the time.

    Also run a blog titled 'A Burnt Ship' about Stuart era war poetry and prose ( from 1590's until around 1715 )

    'A Burnt Ship' has covered poetry by John Donne, John Dryden, Aphra Behn, John Milton, Edmund Waller, Richard Lovelace, Andrew Marvell, amongst others.
    Also looked Conan Doyle's novel about the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion- 'Micah Clarke', and interviewed Dorset historian Mark Vine about his book on the 1645 Royalist uprising in Weymouth ' A Crabchurch Conspiracy' .

    Future posts will cover literature and prose dealing with Peter the Great's victory against the invading Swedish army at Poltava in 1709
