New Author – Sean Claxton

We’re very pleased to announce our recent signing of historian and battlefield guide Sean Claxton. His work, a battlefield guide to the actions around Bretteville on 8-9 June, 1944 is the first in a new series for Double Dagger. There is no substitute for actually walking the ground when learning about history, and even a relatively minor action can be both fascinating and instructive. Many military colleges and schools use staff rides, battlefield tours, tactical exercises without troops, or other methods in order to teach about warfare. While there are subtle differences between all of these methods, what they share is the use of ground. This new guide, written by someone who has walked the battlefields around Bretteville many times, is a detailed guide to support a self-guided walking tour.

New Author: Charles Estep

We’re very pleased to announce a partnership with a new author, Charles Estep. An active duty US Air Force pilot, his debut book tells the little known history of The Gambia Company, a colonial force formed in 1902 that went on to serve the British Empire through two world wars. In keeping with our desire to publish history that is new and innovative, we’re greatly looking forward to getting this book onto shelves around the world in 2022.

Launching in early 2022!
