War veteran-turned-author, Charles Cordell, is set to sign copies of his latest book in a Suffolk bookstore.

The signing will take place at Waterstones, Bury St Edmunds, on July 4.

Mr Cordell's new novel is part of the popular Divided Kingdom series, focusing on the English Civil War battles in the West of England in 1643.

His works are held in high regard for their authenticity, drawn from not just intensive historical research but also his experience as a professional soldier.

Mr Cordell said: “These stories are not based on a single hero.

"They do not take sides.

"Their voices – ordinary men and women – face each other in the chaos of Britain in civil war, a war fought in our towns, villages and fields.

"They are both relatable and sharply relevant today.”

The latest instalment carries the action westward in 1643, opening at the violent Battle of Lansdown Hill, outside Bath.

The book signing serves as an opportunity for fans to meet Mr Cordell and learn more about the war that significantly shaped Britain's history.
