Welcome to Paddy Griffith's Web Site

HELLO, and welcome to my personal website (the ultimate vanity)! My name is Paddy Griffith and I am a Military Historian. I have recently moved to Withington, in South Manchester, from Nuneaton in Warwickshire.

    I specialise in the history of Battlefield Tactics in the period since 1789; but I also take in a few other related subjects such as Strategy and the Operational Art; Military Culture, and (as occasional one-offs) a few other periods of military history, such as the Viking wars. I have always been very interested in the way wargames may be a useful adjunct to the serious study of these phenomena, and I also believe that military historians should visit the sites of past battles, whenever they can, not least through membership of the 'Battlefields Trust'.

This website will tell you a bit about my views on military history, and will describe all my books and various related activities:
