Dr. Sheila King
I first became interested in military history many years ago whilst researching four of my ancestors who served in The First World War. This interest quickly became a passion and, through many, many hours of research in military museums, The National Archives and online, as well as from kind donations from other family members, I have now amassed a large portfolio on each of ‘my’ soldiers.
I also have a long-standing and very keen interest in the social and psychological effects of war on those who take part, which stems from my academic research into the pathogenesis of post-traumatic stress disorder. The skills I have acquired in my academic and military research now serve me well in researching the lives of the soldiers, sailors and airmen who have served their country in times of peace and war over the last 200 years.
