About the Author

Jim’s interest in military history and computer gaming began while shuffling from one Army base to another in the Seventies. D & D, wargames, paintball, and martial arts made up the bulk of his junior high and high school years. Following that, Jim served about 10 years with the 82nd Airborne Division, including Desert Shield/Desert Storm, and another 4 years with the North Carolina Army National Guard, where he was professionally trained as a journalist/photographer/military historian.

Since then, Jim has remained active in all his interests, and now looks for ways to gather others into these subjects via writing. In addition to the Armchair General, Jim is a game reviewer for the Wargamer website. His other interests include disco, reading, the Sci Fi and History channels, and Alyssa Milano.
