About the author:-
Although Dave Cooper has worked in construction management and estimation for many years, he has had a life-long interest in history, particularly in relation to the English Civil War and the military history of his home county of Staffordshire.
Dave has extensively researched these subjects before, during and since his studies at Keele University, with a number of books to his credit as a result. Not only are his interests academic, but practical as well, with memberships of several local military history interest groups, a leading light in the raising of several commemorative monuments in Staffordshire, regular stalling out at military interest collectors fairs in the Midlands and an active membership of Sir John Gell’s Regiment of the Sealed Knot English Civil War re-enactment Society
