Dominic Sandbrook is one of Britain’s best known historians. Educated at Oxford, St Andrews and Cambridge, he is the author of a series of bestselling books about Britain since the 1950s. His most recent book is Who Dares Wins, which takes the story to the end of the Falklands War. The Times called it ‘absolutely breathtaking’, with ‘Thucydidean coolness, balance and wisdom’. Formerly a lecturer at Sheffield, he is now Visiting Professor at King’s College London. He is a columnist for the Daily Mail and a book critic for the Sunday Times, and has written a column for BBC History Magazine for more than a decade. He has written and presented numerous BBC2 and Radio Four programmes on subjects from the 1970s and 1980s to the history of science fiction and the story of the German car industry. He lives with his family in north Oxfordshire and, most importantly, is a fan of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
