Greenhill Books Relaunch

Posted on Wednesday 9th November 2016


Greenhill Books, established in 1984 by the London Book Fair founder Lionel Leventhal, has not published any new books since 2007. It has almost 1000 military history books on its backlist (many of which are available in more than 15 foreign language editions).

‘I'm delighted to be working with Michael Leventhal again. He has an amazing ability to sniff out and commission a fascinating collection of impactful and groundbreaking projects. We look forward to working on these titles with Greenhill Books, who have an excellent reputation in the field of Military History.'
