Scott Addington runs Military Research UK, a company specialising in uncovering family heroes and has always been fascinated by the individual stories that make up the wider picture of military history. This intrigue lead him to find out more about the men behind the medals in books such as 'For Conspicuous Gallantry...' and the soon to be published 'Britain's Bravest Soldiers - The First World War'. As well as the personal stories, Scott is on a mission to open up whole subject of the First World War to children, teenagers and adults alike who would not necessarily read 900 page epics on the subject. His First World Fact Book, as well as his other works on this subject including, 'World War One: A Layman's Guide' and his infographic project 'The Great War 100' are a perfect introductions to the conflict and have won many plaudits. In 2009, Scott cycled the entire Western Front trench line system (550 miles) raising several thousand pounds for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal (you can read about this adventure in 'Heroes of The Line' on Kindle) and in 2014 plans to do another ride for charity, this time even longer and more crazy than the last one.
