I am constantly asked what sources I used for the different series. Rather than upload a document or release a blog post, I decided to place this section here on the site, and update it regularly enough to keep you guys informed. Listed so far in bibliography are the following:

1) First World War/July Crisis/A Matter of Honour

2) 1916 Rising miniseries

3) Thirty Years War Miniseries

In time I plan to bring more of the other materials and place them here as a kind of treasure trove and centre for finding everything you need to know. With every major series I hope to launch, we should be able to point people towards this space for most questions. If you have any questions about sources or bibliographies etc, make sure to let me know through the usual channels. I am never far from my email: wdfpodcast@hotmail.com

Where possible, every attempt has been made to give credit to the author/historian. I am indebted to the following works, without which the 1916 Miniseries would never have gone ahead. If you wish to inquire about any of them, please contact me with any questions you may have, I'd be happy to help where I can. The following the list has been exhaustively constructed, so I hope it will be useful to you if you ever decide to do such a project as this one.
