My name is Garrett Eriksen. I am a military historian, lecturer, conservationist, photographer, film maker and traveller currently based at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

I have a deep love for all things historical and have dabbled in archaeology for a while (though I haven’t run through any booby-trapped temples yet.) I mostly work with war veterans on their war-time experiences and also do work on lesser known wars and battles as I feel they also need exposure and study… (not every war was World War II – I’m looking at you History Channel.)

I want this blog to be a space where I write more detailed articles than what my Podcasts or Facebook posts allow for, and where I can deal with more difficult subjects in a more complex manner.

I hope to share some of my passion and findings with you and to tell stories long into the night.

Feel free to contact me at geriksen@thisishistory.org

This is me pointing at a thing…
