About the Author

Bill Yenne is the San Francisco-based author of more than four dozen books on military and historical topics. He is also a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors.

More About the Author

Bill Yenne is the author of more than three dozen books on historical topics, as well as several novels. He has contributed to encyclopedias of both world wars, and has been featured in several documentaries which have aired on the History Channel, the National Geographic Channel, the Smithsonian Channel and ARD German Television. The "Wall Street Journal" notes that Yenne writes "with a cinematic vividness."

General Wesley Clark, US Army (Ret), former Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, called Yenne's recent biography of Alexander the Great, the "best yet." Of his biography of Julius Caesar, Philip Delves Broughton wrote in the "Wall Street Journal" that "Yenne is excellent at describing Caesar in battle, mingling tactics and strategy with the smells and sounds of war." The New Yorker wrote of Sitting Bull, Yenne's biography of the great Lakota leader, that it "excels as a study in leadership." This book was named to the number 14 spot in Amazon's "100 Best Books of the Year" when it was released.

Meanwhile, Yenne's dual biography of Dick Bong and Tommy McGuire, Aces High: The Heroic Story of the Two Top-Scoring American Aces of World War II was described by pilot and best-selling author Dan Roam as "the greatest flying story of all time."

Yenne has also written extensively about the history of beer and brewing. His "Guinness: The 250 Year Quest for the Perfect Pint," was listed among the top business books of the year by "Condé Nast Portfolio Magazine," while the same publication rated the book as its top pick for "Cocktail Conversation."

Yenne's novels have included the "Bladen Cole" Westerns; an alternate history about General George Patton entitled "A Damned Fine War;" and the "Raptor Force" trilogy, an action-adventure series.

Bill Yenne lives in San Francisco, California, and on the web at www.BillYenne.com

If you are looking for a book detailing the history of the American Brewery, this is the book to get. It reminds me of the history textbooks I had when I was in school only this book is all about beer! It starts around the time of the early settlers and moves to modern times. I love the pictures they included, they are by far the best part. If you are looking for the history of beer in America, pick this up!

American brewery is a good history book. When I opened to pages and pages of pictures though I couldn't help but feel like a kid with a picture book (its probably more accurate to call this a coffee table book). At times this book gets a little dry, but I felt like the craft brewing era was my favorite chapter. Very informative.
