My name is Eric Mueller and welcome to my blog! I am the text editor here at Squadron Signal Publications and I’m excited to get this started and hope you will subscribe and follow along!
I plan to use this blog as a platform to introduce and discuss new titles, interview our authors on their latest contributions, and share my perspective and love of history behind the subject matters in the books.
A Little Bit About Me
When I joined Squadron Signal Publications as a text editor back in 2008, I was excited at the prospect of combining my interest in history with more than two decades’ experience in research, writing, translating, and editing.
I came to Squadron with a master’s degree from the University of Texas and had done further graduate work in World War II-era history at the University of North Texas.
Professionally, I had worked as a magazine editor and writer and later as a book editor and author. Primarily employed in the trade publication industry in Asia I plied my trade while living and working in China, including Hong Kong; Egypt; India; Saudi Arabia; Syria; Turkey; and Viet Nam.
Being able to read and translate Arabic and Russian, I am able to draw on a wide range of source materials while doing research and writing – and these skills proved useful as I took on the task of checking and polishing the manuscripts presented to me at Squadron by our seasoned and specialized writers.
And on the topic of our writers, it’s important to note that Squadron Signal Publications was that time a deeply-rooted company with many veteran writers.
Squadron’s first title, Luftwaffe In Action, was issued when the firm was still headquartered in Michigan in 1971.
Since then hundreds of titles and probably hundreds of thousands of copies of Squadron books have been published and found readers all over the world. The quality, presentation, and authority of Squadron’s books have steadily grown.
While a large variety of book series have come and gone, Squadron is still publishing books in the In Action series today, 45 years later.
So stay tuned to this blog as we carry on our tradition!
