Welcome to my website

Many visitors will be familiar with my previous Forman's Guide Books since the 1980's plus my long established status as an International Numismatic Expert.

However I am also interested in a broad spectrum of historical subjects from Napoleon to the War in Vietnam I therefore decided to write a handful of Books These will be published between 2020 and 2022.

This site is dedicated to my Books and is logically split into two areas, Books & DVD-CD's For Sale and My Book Projects, the latter being details of the books that I am currently working on.

If you would like to be kept informed on the progress of new titles and expected publication dates please register your email address (top left) and we will email you when any significant news breaks.

You will also notice (bottom left) our Latest News box where you will find all the latest news and updates.

I hope you will enjoy browsing the site.
