Brian Bond spent most of his teaching career at King's College London where he played a role in developing the Department of Wars Studies from its very early days in the 1960s. He was awarded a personal chair in Military History and was also appointed a Fellow of the College (FKC). He was President of the Commission for Military History (BCMH) from 1986 to 2006, and was a Visiting Fellow at Brasenose College and, later, at All Souls College, Oxford. He delivered the Lees Knowles Lectures at Cambridge in 2000, published two years later as "The Unquiet Western Front". His other numerous publications range, in time, from "The Victorian Army and the Staff College" (1972) to "Britain's Two World Wars against Germany" (2014). Other noteworthy books include "British Military Policy between the Two World Wars" (1980) and " Survivors of a Kind. Memoirs of the Western Front" (2008). He has been extremely fortunate to be able to combine an academic career in London while living most of his life, with his wife Madeleine, in a beautiful village in the Thames Valley.
