About Peter Darman

I was raised in Grantham, Lincolnshire and attended the King's Grammar School after passing the Eleven Plus exam. In the latter I clearly remember writing an essay on Oliver Cromwell – my first piece of military writing.

Then came a BA in history and international relations at Nottingham followed by a Master of Philosophy course at the University of York. The subject was the generalship and cavalry of Prince Rupert of the Rhine, my boyhood hero, during the English Civil War. The year I spent researching and writing at York, Oxford and at the British Library in London was a truly wonderful time.
I moved to London and eventually joined a small publishing company as an editor. Thus began my writing career. I now live in Lincolnshire with my wife Karen.

I like historical fiction and this is well written. Took me a while to start reading it but once I started the book it was hard to put down. Very enjoyable reading and look forward to the next book in the series.

Fast paced. Coherent story. Well written. As a fan of historical fiction, I enjoyed this book. It is a sympathetic (to the rebels) portrayal of Spartacus and the third servile war. Altogether a good adventure. Now that the sequel is out I will pursue the story with pleasure.
