Meet the Staff of Military History


Stephen Harding

After service as a U.S. Army infantryman, Steve became
a defense journalist and covered the conflicts in Northern
Ireland and the Middle East, most recently Iraq. Writer of seven books and some 300 magazine articles, Steve served as senior editor of Military History from 2009 to 2013, when he took over the helm as editor.

Brian Walker
Art Director

Brian is a seasoned publication designer with numerous accolades to his credit, including awards from such prestigious competitions as the Society of Publication Designers Annual Show. When Brian is not designing the pages of Military History, drawing, painting or learning more about history through the ages, he is likely to be found cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

David Lauterborn
Managing Editor

Dave's fascination with history stretches back to childhood reading and travels and the day he learned of a Cody branch on his family tree. A longtime editor (Lonely Planet, National Geographic, et al.), published writer and photographer, and author of two books, he now gets paid to learn as managing editor of Military History and Wild West.

Sarah R. Cokeley
Senior Editor

Sarah's background in historic preservation spurred her interest in history, historic places and the stories of our past. Joining Weider History in 2010, she has worked on Vietnam and American History, as a photo editor and an associate editor. Now, as senior editor of Military History, Sarah enjoys writing, editing and learning about warfare across the ages.

Jennifer E. Berry
Senior Photo Editor

Photographer, author and student of ancient history and archaeology, Jennifer loves that her job involves looking at
photos and fine art all day. During her first-ever excavation,
at a site destroyed by Philip of Macedon, she unearthed
a small, oblong piece of lead and—thanks to her work on
Military History
—recognized it as an ancient sling bullet.

Jon Guttman
Research Director

Former editor of Modern Warfare (1990–91) and Military History (1995–2006), Jon now writes for Military History and several
other publications and serves as research director for Weider History Group. He has written dozens of books on naval and aviation history, many for Osprey Publishing. Jon served in
the U.S. Army National Guard from 1984 to 2005.

David T. Zabecki
Senior Historian

Dave served in Vietnam as an infantryman and retired
from the U.S. Army in 2007 as a major general. He earned
a doctorate in military history from Britain's Royal Military
College of Science and is an honorary senior research
fellow at the University of Birmingham. In 2012 he was
the Shifrin Distinguished Professor of Military and Naval
History at the U.S. Naval Academy. Dave has published
nine books and almost 600 articles. He lives in Germany.
