Small Wars Journal

A Reflection: SWJ and the Media

Of late I've been interviewed by Howard Altman of the Tampa Tribune concerning SWJ and what I'm doing now, down here in the Tampa Bay area. To provide some perspective I provided Howard an informal listing I've been keeping of SWJ news and book references I've come across. Keep in mind this list is not all inclusive and I am sure some of the older links may be broken ones. That said, I thought I'd share this list with our readers:

BTW, many references are related to Robert Haddick's work here at SWJ. He has moved on (from Managing Editor and writing his "This Week at War" column for us and Foreign Policy) but, thank God, is still a member of the Small Wars Foundation Board of Directors. He is still with us and provides his typical sage advice.
