A little about myself. I was born in the United States, grew up in Australia, and educated (sort of) in Britain, worked in Canada, but now live in New York (well, sort of). For several years, I was a journalist but went into the History Business around the time my book, "Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring," first appeared. It's since been used as the basis for the AMC drama series, "Turn: Washington's Spies," for which I also serve as writer and producer.
These days, I keep the wolves from the door by reviewing the odd book for the newspapers and cranking out the occasional article for various magazines. My next book, "Men of War: The American Experience of Battle at Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, and Iwo Jima," is coming out on June 9, 2015.
I always like to hear from readers, so if you have any questions or comments or requests, please feel free to contact me, either by email (www.alexrose.com), on Twitter, or through The FaceBook.
