Historian and author
Welcome to my home on the web! I’m Paul Lockhart, author of The Drillmaster of Valley Forge: The Baron de Steuben and the Making of the American Army and, more recently, The Whites of Their Eyes: Bunker Hill, the First American Army, and the Emergence of George Washington. My aim is to write about the history of war for those who enjoy military history and for those who don’t…but who do like a good read. Although I’m a professionally-trained academic historian, and still a professor who actively teaches, what I love to do most is to write history for non-specialists and non-academics.
Here you will find my blog, a place to buy my books, and ways of getting in touch with me. Please feel free to comment on my blog posts or to contact me via the email addresses listed on the “Contact” page. I love to hear from my fans.
