Peter Darman


Born
Grantham, Lincolnshire, The United Kingdom
Website

Genre


I was raised in Grantham, Lincolnshire and attended the King's Grammar School after passing the Eleven Plus exam. In the latter I clearly remember writing an essay on Oliver Cromwell – my first piece of military writing.

Then came a BA in history and international relations at Nottingham followed by a Master of Philosophy course at the University of York. The subject was the generalship and cavalry of Prince Rupert of the Rhine, my boyhood hero, during the English Civil War. The year I spent researching and writing at York, Oxford and at the British Library in London was a truly wonderful time.
I moved to London and eventually joined a small publishing company as an editor. Thus began my writing career.

Quotes by Peter Darman  (?)

“As in all societies, marriage was of vital importance because it not only ensured the continuation of the family, the bedrock of all civilisations, but also contributed towards social stability. What was society but a vast collection of families, each operating according to a framework of rules and regulations passed down from generation to generation? Good citizens were not created and raised by kings but by husbands and wives. Marriage was therefore one of the most important institutions in the civilised world.”
Peter Darman, The Slave King

“Thaddeus was organising the positioning of the”
Peter Darman, The Sword Brothers

“to live in perpetual darkness allows one to see things more clearly, if that is not a contradiction in terms. It has allowed me to look into men’s souls more deeply, to see them for what they are and not what they present to the world. It has been a most illuminating experience.”
Peter Darman, Amazon
