History editing and proofing
Dr Christopher Brice is an experienced military historian, editor, and researcher. Between 2015 and 2023 he worked as the series and commissioning editor for Helion & Co Ltd’s From Musket to Maxim, 1815-1914 series. In this work he has overseen through the various stages to print just over 40 books. He is therefore experienced in preparing manuscripts for print.
His PhD, ‘The Military Career of General Sir Henry Brackenbury’, part of a joint research agreement between De Montfort University and the war studies department of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, involved considerable archival research. His thesis was the basis for his first book, The Thinking Man’s Soldier, a full biography of General Sir Henry Brackenbury. He is the author of two other books (Brave as a Lion, and Forgotten Victorian Generals), along with contributing a chapter to Professor Stephen M Miller’s book Queen Victoria’s Wars. He has a wide understanding of global conflict during the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
