As we observe the 70th anniversary of D-Day, we are especially proud to introduce just a few of Stackpole's outstanding Military History authors.
JOSEPH BALKOSKI is Command Historian of the Maryland National Guard and an acknowledged expert on World War II's D-Day. He has appeared as a D-Day expert on MSNBC, and his work has been praised by Joe Scarborough, the New York Post, the Washington Times, World War II Magazine, and others.
A resident of Baltimore, Maryland, Joe moved there in 1981. His interest in the U.S. Army's 29th Infantry Division developed because many of his neighbors served in it. In 2004 he established the 29th Division Archives at Baltimore's Fifth Regiment Armory, which is now a major research center for World War II scholars.
