Daniel Allen Butler
Daniel Allen Butler is a maritime and military historian, the author (through mid-2021) of eleven books. Some of his previous works include "'Unsinkable'--the Full Story of RMS Titanic"; "Distant Victory--the Battle of Jutland and the Allied Triumph in the First World War"; "The Age of Cunard--A Transatlantic History, 1839-2003"; "The Other Side of the Night: The Carpathia, the Californian, and the Night the Titanic was Lost"; "The Burden of Guilt: How Germany Shattered the Last Days of Peace, Summer 1914"; "Shadow of the Sultan's Realm: the Destruction of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East"; "Field Marshal--the Life and Death of Erwin Rommel"; and his newest, "Pearl - December 7, 1941". Educated at Hope College, Grand Valley State University, and the University of Erlangen (FAU), Butler served in the United States Army before becoming a full time author. He is an internationally-recognized authority on military and maritime subjects and a popular guest-speaker, having given presentations at the National Archives in Washington DC, the Mariners Museum, and in the United Kingdom. From 2002 to 2010, he was also a frequent guest in the on-board enrichment series of Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2, as well as the ships of the Royal Caribbean and Norwegian cruise lines. Butler's newest book, Pearl -- December 7, 1941, was published in November 2020 by Casemate Publishing. He is currently at work on two new projects: "The Convoy -- ONS-5 and the Last Stand of the Wolfpacks"; and “TANK! -- The Battle of Arracourt, September 1944". A self-proclaimed "semi-professional beach bum," Butler divides what little time he spends away from his writing between meandering down long stretches of empty beach, his love of woodworking, his passion for tinkering on his Triumph Spitfire, and his fascination with building model ships. After living and working in Los Angeles, California, for several years, Butler now resides in northern Georgia, though he hopes to return soon to living on the beaches of Florida's First Coast.
