Nigel and David Lassman are brothers who were born and educated in Bath. Both are authors. While Nigel has written about local & family history, railways and the air war in Malaya, as well as having a keen interest in railway modelling, David has written extensively about music, Jane Austen and the place he now lives, Frome. These include articles for numerous publications, including BBC History, and the books ‘Frome in the Great War’ and ‘The Awful Killing of Sarah Watts’, the latter recounting the town’s most infamous murder. David is also co-creator of the Regency Detective series of novels, set in Bath during the early nineteenth century. ‘Bath at War 1939-45’ is their first book together.
