The article would be improved if the list of titles by Milton were not linked and were given bibliographic details.
The publication details of White gold are: Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Date of publication: 2004
We also need to know Giles Milton's Date of Birth and education etc.

Critical acclaim sections
Glad to see the work that has gone into expanding this piece about this excellent British writer. The only problem I see with the piece, as it now stands (and it is greatly improved), is the separate section of 'critical acclaim' on each book. This seems a bit awkward to me. Far better would be a list of each work and a description (and there is now), and then one section on critical acclaim. I find it a distraction to have several sections devoted to critical acclaim.

The whole article - and especially the "critical acclaim" section - looks to me distastefully like promotional material. This is the kind of thing publishers slap on the back of popular histories. A sentence or two on Milton's standing as a writer of popular historical works would be more than adequate. Links can be provided to reviews in newspapers and magazines rather than quoting excerpts from them. It is not - I understand - the business of Wikipedia to advertise books on behalf of writers or publishers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:29, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
I did an extensive general copyed 1/. "historian" inappropriate for writer of popular boos who is not a scholar. 2/ Removed excessive use of his name & book titles. 3/The existing article is first of all highly promotional, and written in a style that would normally indicate his major works are intended for children--I am rewritinjg in more mature English. 4/ More work to go.
