Professor in History, University of Liverpool

A historian working at the interface of military, political and social history, I am a specialist on Spain in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic era, and, more specifically the Peninsular War of 1808-14. However, my work has also ranged over the history of Spain in the whole period from 1788 to 1939, as well as the general history of Napoleon and his empire. Having recently published articles on the Bonaparte Kingdom of Spain, women in the Peninsular War and the siege of Burgos, I am currently working on a study of France in 1815.
