SAUL DAVID is an historian, broadcaster and novelist. His many critically-acclaimed history books include: The Indian Mutiny:1857 (shortlisted for the Westminster Medal for Military Literature); Zulu (a Waterstone’s Military History Book of the Year); Victoria’s Wars and, most recently, Operation Thunderbolt: Flight 139 and the Raid on Entebbe Airport (an Amazon UK History Book of the Year). The film rights to the latter were bought by Hollywood film company Participant Media and used in the making of the motion picture '7 Days in Entebbe', co-produced by Working Title, directed by José Padilha, and starring Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl and Eddie Marsan. It was released in the US and UK (as ‘Entebbe’) in the spring of 2018.
Saul has also written three historical novels set in the late Victorian period. The first, Zulu Hart (2009), was described by The Times as a ‘rattling good yarn’ with ‘a compelling, sexy hero who could give Cornwell’s Sharpe a run for his money’. The third in the series, The Prince and the Whitechapel Murders, was published in February 2018.
Saul has presented and appeared in history progammes for all the major TV channels, and is Professor of Military History at the University of Buckingham.
