Douglas d'Enno is a historian, linguist and journalist who has made an exhaustive study of the impact of the First World War not only on Brighton but also on Britain's fishermen and their vessels (the first volume of his Fishermen Against the Kaiser was published by Pen & Sword in 2010, with research continuing for the second). After a career which included several years spent applying his linguistic and editorial skills in a publishing environment - primarily - as a translator in public service, he has devoted himself to writing and research. Through contributions in the past to The Argus and local/community publications, he has established a reputation as a leading authority on Brighton and the surrounding area. Published works include The Saltdean Story (1985), The Church in a Garden (2001), Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths around Brighton (published by Wharncliffe/Pen & Sword in 2004), Brighton Crime and Vice 1800-2000 (published in 2007, also by Wharncliffe/Pen & Sword), and a number of 'then and now' pictorial books on the Brighton area and on Sussex. A book on the county's railway stations through time is in preparation and plans are being laid for a book on Brighton in the Second World War2.
