I am something of a vagabond. A security consultant by trade, a writer by desire, a history buff by birth and a keeper of useless knowledge by design. The biggest thing about me is that I keep my head down, take notes and try not to get caught in the crossfire.

Chris believes that journalist and military historian Sir Max Hastings said it best when he stated ” A generation ago, people who wrote so-called military history were …chiefly in the business of describing which division went this way and that division went that way—the minutiae of campaigns-Today by contrast, people like me…are above all in the business of describing human experience. Which seems to us overwhelmingly the most important contribution we have to make about this instance of events.”
