The purpose of this thread is to list in one place the interviews the AHF has conducted on behalf of its membership over the years. Hopefully through the authors answers to a mix of set stock questions, and specific questions from our membership, the reader is able to gain an insight into the good the bad and the ugly, of being a writer of military history.

The authors are listed alphabetically and with a short premise about themselves, their work and a link to the actual interview.

Number of interviews listed so far 11

ANDERSON Jr, Richard C: has been working as a military historian and analyst since 1987 when he joined Trevor N. Dupuy's Historical Evaluation and Research Organization. After Trevor's death in 1995 Rich continued to work for The Dupuy Institute until 2008 when he became an analyst for the U.S. Army.

BALLANTYNE, Iain:is a respected defence journalist and author, whilst also being the current Editor of the respected naval magazine 'Warships-International Fleet Review. ... ballantyne

CANTRELL, Rebecca: has written several fictional books the Third Reich era viewtopic.php?f=24&t=184150

HAMMEL, Eric: began writing military history at the age of fifteen and his books have been appearing regularly since the mid 1970s. He has written forty military history books in all and nearly seventy articles, and he served as contributing editor and the West Coast stringer for Leatherneck magazine in the 1980s. He founded Pacifica Military History in 1985 and has worked as a staff and freelance editor on at least a hundred military history books. He has become a strong practitioner of and advocate for the print-on-demand and electronic publishing methods. He is now all but retired but has taken up fiction writing as therapy against boredom. He also creates fractal art as a hobby

HARGREAVES, Richard:has been a journalist for a dozen years, covering the 2003 campaign in Iraq as an official war correspondent aboard HMS Ark Royal. He now writes the newspaper of the Royal Navy, Navy News. He has spent the past 16 years researching the German Armed Forces in both world wars after brashly – and rashly – throwing down a library book in disgust and declaring “I could do better!”

HOULIHAN, Tom:is a deputy sheriff, currently serving in the Corrections Division. After six years in the US Navy, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, retiring from that organization as a Staff Sergeant in 1999.
He has no formal training either in writing or historical research. Most of his projects come out of an attempt to do things differently from what has gone before.

MELNYK, Michael: was born in the UK in 1964 to a Scottish mother and Ukrainian father. He is 46 years old AND does not even hold the lowest possible qualification (O [ordinary] level) in history given in the UK. From 1984 until 2001 he worked (and still does) within the British legal system exclusively to fund his research.
