Recent work for World War II Magazine

Over the past year or so, I have been illustrating the ‘Fire For Effect’ column in World War II Magazine. Here are a few recent entries.

First up, what was the most dangerous job during the war? Maybe, being a German general. Wehrmacht officers had a tendency to lead from the front, resulting in an unusually high casualty rate among the officer corps.

Next, in the summer of 1944, the Allies were convinced that victory was imminent. The Norman invasion and the liberation of France were big blows, but the Germans retreated, were able to patch themselves up and launch a major counter-offensive.

Finally, imagining a world where Germany doesn’t launch Operation Barbarosa. If Germany honors the Molotov-Ribentrop pact and never invades the Soviet Union the outcome of the war might have been very different. Would an authoritarian, Axis super bloc of Germany, Russia, Italy and Japan have emerged victorious?
