Nathan N. Prefer is retired with graduate degrees in Military History. His life long studyof the Second World War has resulted in three prior Military studies including MacArthur ‘s New Guinea Campaign, March-August 1944; Patton’s Ghost Corps, Cracking the Siegfried Line and Vinegar Joe ‘s War, Stilwell ‘s Campaigns in Burma. He resides in Fort Myers, Florida. His interest in the Tinian Campaign began when he served in the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve as a part of the 4th Marine Division. Researching that unit’s history he discovered that almost nothing had been written about one of it’s World War II campaigns. The resulting research became Tinian; The Perfect Campaign. He is currently working on a book covering the U. S. Army’s campaign on Leyte in the Philippines.
