More About the Author

Martina Sprague is a military historian, martial artist, and aviation enthusiast. Her recent book, For God, Gold, and Glory: A History of Military Service and Man's Search for Power, Wealth, and Adventure is of interest to military and social historians, as well as armchair warriors dreaming of the glory that "mischance" prevented them from obtaining. It has been said that wars are fought for God (and country), gold (power and wealth), and glory (honor and heroism). Beneath these identifiers are several subcategories that explain the reasons why governments send troops to war, and why men and increasingly more women voluntarily enlist in the armed forces and fight for their country (or for somebody else's). For God, Gold, and Glory sheds light on those individuals who commit their lives to armed service for reasons related to patriotism, financial gain, adventure, and heroism.

Also of interest might be a new book series titled "A 59-Minute Perspective," each book meant to be read in just under an hour. There are many prisms through which one can view warfare in America and the rest of the world. Rather than examining specific battles or simply giving the reader a rundown of events for memorization, this series of books focuses on the underlying military, social, and political factors that shaped warfare and drove the development of military traditions at home and abroad. The books are suitable for history interested readers looking for thought provoking topics, but not having a lot of time; and for teachers preparing the class for critical thinking about historical events, and how they have come to affect current affairs.
