Sean McFate

Welcome everybody! Thank you for visiting my Amazon author's page.

I see war differently. I have travelled to 65 countries, some places where war never ceases. I've served as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division, and then as a private military contractor in Africa. Some would call me a mercenary- an intellectual one at least. I studied at Brown, Harvard, and the London School of Economics, earning my Ph.D. in International Relations. Now I am a professor of war studies, strategy, and foreign policy. The question that drives me is: "Why does America keep losing wars to weaker powers?" I write books to explore and answer this question.

Thank you for all of your support. For more information, check out http://www.seanmcfate.com and you can follow me on twitter @seanmcfate.
