  • Giles Milton (born 15 January 1966) is a writer who specialises in narrative history. His books have been published in twenty languages worldwide and are international best-sellers. He has written nine works of non-fiction, a thriller, two comic novels and three books for young children. He is best known for his 1999 best-selling title, Nathaniel's Nutmeg, a historical account of the violent struggle between the English and Dutch for control of the world supply of nutmeg in the early 17th century. The book was serialised by BBC Radio 4. Nathaniel's Nutmeg was followed by Big Chief Elizabeth, Samurai William and White Gold, books of narrative non-fiction that took as their subject matter the pioneering English adventurers in Asia, North Africa and the New World, and then by his 2008, Paradise Lost, Smyrna 1922: The Destruction of Islam's City of Tolerance, which investigated the bloody sacking of Smyrna in September 1922. This was followed by Wolfram: The Boy Who Went to War, 2012, and Russian Roulette: How British Spies Thwarted Lenin's Global Plot, which was published in the summer of 2013 in the UK and in April, 2014 in North America.Fascinating Footnotes from History was published by John Murray on 24 September 2015.

The book is published by Picador in the US. Milton sits on the board of trustees of the London Library. (en)
