J. David Dameron received his education at the University of North Carolina. He is retired from the U.S. Army, where he served with the 82nd Airborne Division and the 7th Special Forces Group. J. David Dameron now teaches evening classes in American History at Troy University and works as a civilian weapons research specialist at the U.S. Army Infantry School. J. David Dameron is the author of General Henry Lewis Benning : This Was a Man; Kings Mountain: The Defeat of the Loyalists October 7, 1780; Benning's Brigade, Vol. 1: A History and Roster of the Fifteenth Georgia; and, Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II: The WASP.  He is also a co-author of A Guide to the Battles of the American Revolution.

 

According to the book description of General Henry Lewis Benning: This Was a Man, “This book serves as the premier and definitive biography of Georgia's supreme court justice and Confederate general. Its 438 pages reflect a decade of research, presented in a chronological narrative complemented by hundreds of notes, 92 photographs, maps, charts and little known facts concerning a man who was admired by all races. His real-life story unfolds like a romantic novel of the old South. In fact, upon researching Benning and his wife for a news article in 1925, Margaret Mitchell was inspired to write her sweeping saga of the South, Gone With the Wind. While the book focuses upon Benning's career in law, and his experiences on the battlefield, the details of his life at home present the readers with a balanced and intimate perspective of his life and times. The book also has an extensive bibliography, highly detailed chapter end-notes, appendices that provide additional details, and a thoroughly useful index. Both serious researchers and casual non-fiction readers will find the story of Henry Benning an informative pleasure to read and filled with interesting details to explore.”

 

According to the book description of A Guide to the Battles of the American Revolution, “A Guide to the Battles of the American Revolution is the first comprehensive account of every engagement of the Revolution, a war that began with a brief skirmish at Lexington Green on April 19, 1775, and concluded on the battlefield at the Siege of Yorktown in October 1781.  In between were six long years of bitter fighting on land and at sea. The wide variety of combats blanketed the North American continent from Canada to the Southern colonies, from the winding coastal lowlands to the Appalachian Mountains, and from the North Atlantic to the Caribbean.

 

Unlike existing accounts, A Guide to the Battles of the American Revolution presents each engagement in a unique way. Each battle entry offers a wide and rich-but consistent-template of information to make it easy for readers to find exactly what they are seeking.

 

Every entry begins with introductory details including the date of the battle, its location, commanders, opposing forces, terrain, weather, and time of day. The detailed body of each entry offers both a Colonial and British perspective of the unfolding military situation, a detailed and unbiased account of what actually transpired, a discussion of numbers and losses, an assessment of the consequences of the battle, and suggestions for further reading. Many of the entries are supported and enriched by original maps and photos. Fresh, scholarly, informative, and entertaining,  A Guide to the Battles of the American Revolution will be welcomed by historians and general enthusiasts everywhere.”

 

According to the book description of Kings Mountain: The Defeat of the Loyalists October 7, 1780, “In the summer of 1780, while British troops roamed the southern countryside striking fear into the hearts of rebels, a hardy group of "over-the-mountain men" from Tennessee vowed to defend their families and farms. At Kings Mountain, in northwest South Carolina, this small volunteer contingent of frontiersmen met the British in early October. The American victory there forced the British to retreat and turned the tide in the American Revolution's southern campaign.”

According to the book description of Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II: The WASP, “Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) history has been virtually overlooked for 59 years. While several books have been published about these heroines, the scope of these works are limited primarily to memoirs, which fail to present a holistic view of the WASP program, the role of women during World War II, and their contributions to our nation's defense and heritage. Here, at last, is a comprehensive book that examines WASP history. This fascinating true-life story of American women in action during World War II is presented in a chronological narrative, interlaced with an abundance of pertinent photographs and class rosters, all combined in a single, easily referenced volume. This book will educate, motivate, and inspire readers with the extraordinary lives and achievements of the first women in history to fly American military aircraft. Meet Jacqueline Cochran, a world-renowned pilot, who approached Eleanor Roosevelt with an idea to employ female pilots in var! ious types of support operations, such as flying transports, couriers, and ambulances, thus freeing up the men to serve as combat pilots. Meet Nancy Harkness Love, Cornelia Fort, and other selfless patriots. These "sisters of the sky" loved their country, and despite oppressive restrictions and innuendo of their frailties, they blazed new trails for the women of America.”
