About David Drake

David Drake was taken on a motorized tour of Vietnam and Cambodia by the Army’s 11th Cavalry, the Blackhorse. Through his adventures, he learned new skills, viewed interesting sights, and met exotic people.

He returned to Chapel Hill to become the Assistant Town Attorney and to make sense of his experiences in the Army through fiction.

Dave describes war from a tank’s loader’s hatch in Cambodia. His military experience, combined with his formal education in history and Latin, have made him one of the foremost authors of realistic fantasy and science fiction. A bestselling series of his Hammer’s Slammers is widely credited with creating the modern Military SF genre, and he often wishes he had a less interesting past.

In rural North Carolina, Dave lives with his family.

Born: September 24, 1945, Dubuque, Iowa, The United States
Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy
