Special Guest

HAHMGS is proud to welcome George Nafziger to Borderwars!

Special Guest, George Nafziger! Master of the OOB! Check out his online store (www.nafzigercollection.com) and the Nafziger COOB Collection online. If you've ever researched a battle that had gunpowder in it, you know who he is. If not, he is one of the most prolific and popular authors on military history in the world today. Author and translator of over 200 different titles on military history ranging from the Middle Ages through the Korean War, with a heavy emphasis on the Wars of the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and WWII. George has also been a US Navy Captain, director of the Napoleonic Society of America and the Napoleonic Alliance, and he was even an HMGS-East board member, but we won't hold that against him. George is also our first Guest of Honor with his own Wikipedia page!

Keep an eye on www.Hahmgs.org for more details as we get closer to the show. And be sure to spread the word!
