(Alfred Leo Duggan)
UK flag (1903 - 1964)

Alfred Duggan was a best-selling historical novelist during the 1950s. His novels were real page-turners, but grounded on meticulous historical research. He also wrote some excellent popular histories of Ancient Rome and the Middle Ages. Knight With Armour was his first novel, written in 1946. He visited practically every place and battlefield described in the book, having worked on archaeological excavations in Istanbul during the 1930s.
