Historical Association – Amberley Publishing

Published 24th November 2017

The Historical Association and Amberley Publishing are pleased to announce that the winner of this year’s National History Book Competition is Into the Remote Places: the RAF in the Middle East, 1918 to the present day by Alastair Farquharson. This will be a comprehensive history of British military involvement in the region from the very early years of the RAF to its actions in present-day warzones.

The prize is awarded to an unpublished book proposal or work of history from either an aspiring or established author. The winner was selected from a high-quality shortlist of eight entries, on subjects ranging from a Victorian heiress to town criers. Alastair Farquharson’s winning entry will earn him a publishing contract with leading history publishers Amberley and a £1,000 advance. The organisers would like to thank all those who entered and we look forward to next year’s competition.
