Remembering Sir John Keegan, died 2nd August 2012

Sir John Keegan, military historian and defence editor at The Daily Telegraph, has sadly died aged 78. I am sure a number of our members will be familiar with Keegan's works and his passing is a great loss to the world of military history.

A great loss - one of the old school, thorough and accurate.

I must dig out my copy of The Face of Battle.
