He was a special operations forces scenario writer at the Joint Readiness Training Center for 12 years and is now a freelance writer and author of over two dozen series titles for Osprey. The author lives in Cyprus, TX (near Houston).


"This is an interesting book, and it covers a lot more than just the tactics used in assaults. The unit level examined is the platoon, justifiably so since most attacks were basically combinations of platoon assaults at levels from company upward... Period photographs are accompanied by sketch maps of typical assaults and by good colour plates of the main demolition materials and of typical attacks. Highly recommended." --John Prigent, Internet Modeler (April 2008)"Profusely illustrated by Peter Dennis, in Osprey's common style of excellence, this new book is a very interesting read, and, for those of us who have never been involved in a military attack on a fortified position, it gives a reasonable overview of what goes into the attack -- far more that what Saving Private Ryan or the old John Wayne WWII films might imply. Pick up a copy today if you are interested in the details behind the scenes." --Scott Mingus, Charge! (March 2008)"Overall, it is a superb look at how the armed forces of the nations involved in WWII were similar and different. A book that I know you will find interesting and engrossing." --Scott Van Aken, (May 2008)
