Sam Willis

Sam is the author of numerous books on maritime and naval history including the bestselling Hearts of Oak Trilogy and the Fighting Ships

Series. He has worked on the Hornblower TV series and on

Channel 4’s award winning film Shackleton.


He also happens to be a talented songwriter, guitarist, singer and banjo player, and some of his songs were selected to form the accompanying music to a recent BBC2 documentary, 'Operation Grand Canyon'. It was wonderful to have Sam in the studio to record and mix these songs, particularly as they had a strong contribution in shaping the mood and emotion of the TV series.
