(1952-    ) US soldier (1976-1998, retiring with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel), television columnist on Fox News (after the Wikileaks scandal, he advocated the assassination of its perpetrator, Julian Assange), and War author whose Red Army (1989), a Near Future tale told from a Russian point of view, depicts the USSR defeating NATO forces as World War Three picks up momentum. Reversing field, The War in 2020 (1991) depicts a Soviet Union facing defeat in the far East, and being saved by the American Seventh Cavalry, whose manoeuvres are described with savage clarity. The War After Armageddon (2009) envisions the world in fully Post-Holocaust terms, with Los Angeles (see California) and Israel both destroyed and Europe prostrate, leaving again the field of battle to be described as a venue for Military SF.
