Another book, Skylines of the World: Yesterday and Today, was featured on the Today show in 2006. His more than 30 articles and book reviews have appeared in such publications as Proceedings, Naval History, Wings of Fame, International Air Power Review, Foundation, The Journal of Military History, The Journal of Public History, and Naval Aviation News.
