I can answer questions pertaining to weapons and tactics, personalities, battles, and strategies in european and U.S. history.

Experience in the area

I was a history major, and had done extensive research in the subject area. I have designed and tested numerous computer games for various
historical periods.


B.A History M.S. Science
I have had the opportunity to live abroad and walk numerous battlefields both in the United States, Europe, and the Pacific.

What do you like about this subject?

Military history is the thread that binds almost every historic civilization to one another. Virturally every great civilization came into conflict with it's rivals. The United States is the most recent example. So what better way to understand today's world than by studying the conflicts of the past.
