Giles Milton is a British journalist and author that is best known for his narrative fiction works. Over the years, Milton has sold more than one million copies of his narrative fiction works in the United Kingdom alone.
His works have also been published in more than two dozen languages that include children’s fiction novels, two comic novels, a thriller, and more than a dozen works of non-fiction works.

His best-known work has to be the 2016 published “Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare,” which cemented his reputation as one of the most popular narrative fiction novelists of his era.
The author was born in Buckinghamshire and went to Latymer Upper School before he proceeded to the University of Bristol.

Aside from his writing he has been a London Library Trustee and is a narrator and writer of the “Ministry of Secrets” podcast produced by Sony and Somethin’ Else.

As a journalist, he has made article contributions to most national newspapers in Britain, in addition to many foreign publications where he has published on the history of exploration and travel.

In the course of his research, he traveled extensively in the Americas, the Far East, Europe, Japan, and the Middle East. He comes across as an entertaining, insatiably curious, and knowledgeable author that locates some of the most overlooked and fascinating stories in his works.

He currently makes his home in London and is actively involved in the reprinting of works of adventurers and explorers under the Hakluyt Society. He is known to be constantly on the lookout for new untold stories and is credited for penning the London Library’s “Samurai William.”

Giles published “Edward Trencom’s Nose” his debut novel in 2007 and now has at least half a dozen novels to his name. As for influences, she credits the likes of David Howarth, Peter Hopkirk, Steven Runciman, and Peter Fleming who are first-generation narrative historians that inspired him to pen his own works.

Giles Milton is known for his incredibly detailed works which he credits to the meticulous research he conducts. He usually writes most of his novels directly from primary source materials that often include anything from oral interviews, diaries, unpublished typescripts, and letters.

For this reason, he often spends months researching so that he may locate the people who may have the source material in their possession.
For instance, when writing “Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare” he located the people who were relatives of the half a dozen men that planned audacious gorilla attacks during World War I.
It is from the private archives of such people among other sources that he usually gets the material that he uses to write his narrative historical works.

“Edward Trencom’s Nose” is a story that takes place in the quintessentially Georgian house on Foster Lane in London.

This is the home of the cheese store that belongs to the Trencom family, which had been established by Humphrey Trencom and three centuries later is under the management of Edward Trencom.
It does look like a quaint little house but it has been witness to strange accidents that seem to dog every generation of the dairy-loving family.

Edward has made the family establishment into one of the most popular fromageries in England making use of his trusty nose.
He comes with an aquiline and long nose with a unique circular bump over the bridge like many of his male relatives. It made it possible for him to easily determine the quality, maturity, and composition of the best cheese in the world.
Things turn interesting when he discovers a stash of family papers in a crate. He is horrified to learn that several generations of his family had died in mysterious circumstances due to their noses.

Upon deeper investigation, he comes across his grandfather’s warning that they should not look into how they got their distinguished noses. He soon finds himself trying to resolve a Byzantine riddle as he is hunted down by some dark foes whose p[uirpose and identity are a total mystery.

“According to Arnold” by Giles Milton is a work set in 1585 during the spring where four children embark on an adventure that is sure to forever change their lives. Two brothers and two sisters aged 13 and 9 are taking part in a historic mission as they intend to colonize the new world.

Together, the children will have some brutal experiences trying to start a new life in a new land. Upon arriving in the new land, they befriend Oakee and Keetam two native girls, and begin learning their language.

It is not long before it is only through the girls that the adults are able to communicate and send messages to the tribe and Wingina their chief.

When Master Ralph the evil leader of the colonists attacks the natives, Wingina finally gets his revenge. He finally destroys the settlement the English had established and captured all the adults that he takes back with him to their settlement as prisoners.
The only people that managed to get away were four kids who ran into the forest. They suddenly found themselves forced to learn how to live and survive in the forest so that they can ultimately rescue their adult relatives.

But disaster strikes as the Indians kidnap two kids in rapid succession. The Indians tie them to a stake but John has a few tricks up his sleeve and has no intention of knowing what the Natives have in store for them.

Giles Milton’s “Children of the Wild” introduces an exuberant, charismatic, and somewhat strange man known as Arnold Trevellyan.

His love for mushrooms is only rivaled by his love for Flora who he has been married to for a dozen years. One day while looking for mushrooms, he makes a wonderful discovery that is certain to turn his entire world upside down.
He leaves behind his wife and travels to the South Pacific and ends up getting married to the queen of a remote tropical island. However, not all is as it seems in the idyllic realm that Arnold now rules.

In a series of tapes to his best friend, he tells him that he was lured into an international conspiracy and made prisoner in a realm in which mushrooms hold the key to death and life.

Intensely moving, tragic, and funny it makes for essential reading for men or women that may believe the grass is greener on the other side.
