About this blog and me
As a lover of American and European history, I’ve been an avid reader since junior high school.
As an undergraduate, I worked part-time in the college library, and routinely got “lost” on the floor which housed the history sections. There is nothing like the smell of old books.
This blog includes select excerpts from my writing on the Second World War–along with other work in American military history from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam. This blog’s primary focus is on World War II however, as well as future contributions. Each writing, or ‘diary entry’, is not intended to be a complete historical synopsis of the topic–but aspects of the particular subject I’ve found interesting and noteworthy.
I have an MA in Military History, with a concentration in the history of World War II. My current research finds me digging through archives and primary sources related to the War in the Pacific in 1945 for a future book. I’m currently enrolled in the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program for Writing at University of California, Berkeley.
