I have a PhD in late 18th century British history from Cambridge University. Over the past few years I have conducted extensive historical research into the life of John Pitt, 2nd Earl of Chatham, the elder brother of William Pitt the Younger, best known to history as the “late” Lord Chatham and the commander-in-chief of the ill-fated Walcheren campaign of 1809. This blog showcases some of my discoveries about him and his times.
I am currently working on Lord Chatham’s biography. “The Late Lord: the life of John Pitt, 2nd Earl of Chatham” will be published in January 2017 by Pen & Sword Books.
