Biography

Ben Thompson is the author of twelve books on various awesome historical subjects, including the Guts & Glory and Epic Fails series, and has been a popular history blogger for over fourteen years. He has appeared on television programs for The History Channel, Discovery, and The American Heroes Channel, given talks and presentations at dozens of schools, conferences, and conventions, occasionally runs a podcast and a YouTube channel, and has appeared in print articles for outlets such as Cracked, Fangoria, Soldier of Fortune, and The American Mustache Institute. Ben’s work received awards from the National Parenting Publications, the International Literary Organization, and the Parent’s Choice Group, but the thing he’s the most proud of is that he can occasionally beat the Star Wars Trilogy arcade game with a single quarter.
