Hello, my name is Joshua Gilbert and I am a student of military history and home-school graduate living in the United States, the Great Lakes region, in Michigan. My "home" website can be found at www.historyzing.com

I have been published in the Karwansaray Publishers magazines Ancient Warfare and Medieval Warfare and await publication in Decision Games' Strategy & Tactics. I was also published in an academic publication, the Han Lin Journal on China History Fourm. I am also published online at Military History, Armchair General, Samurai Archives, and self-publish through Triond.

I have been writing since 2003, and been doing so for a profession since 2005.
