William Simpson's Afghanistan by Peter Harrington William Simpson's Afghanistan, Hardback (April 2016)

"Left London, on a journey with Kabool as my objective via Brindisi and Bombay'. With these words written on Tuesday October 15, 1878, the Scottish artist William Simpson (1823-1899), commenced a daily journal which he later entitled Diary of a Journey to Afghanistan during the Campaign of 1878-79.

Castles of Henry VIII by Peter Harrington Castles of Henry VIII, Paperback (September 2007)

Anticipating a foreign onslaught from Europe after his split from Rome, Henry VIII began construction of more than 20 stone forts to protect England's major ports and estuaries. Aided by illustrations, the author explores the departure from artillery-vulnerable medieval castle designs to the low, sturdy stone fortresses inspired by European ideas.
