Who is Author David H Lippman?
I am a 42-year veteran journalist with experience in newspapers, wire services, TV, radio, public relations, on three continents: North America, Asia, and Oceania.
Some of the events I have worked on include New York City’s 50th anniversary celebration of D-Day, New Zealand’s 50th Anniversary Celebration of V-E Day, and Hurricanes Irene and Sandy. In doing so, I have had the good fortune to meet such varied characters as paratroopers who jumped into Normandy (like Bill Guarnere), Royal Navy Battle of the Atlantic veterans, Victoria Cross recipients, and Marines who fought in the liberation of Guam.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from New York University and Master of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing from the New School for Social Research. I have won numerous awards for journalism in daily newspaper work.
For the past 122 years, I have served as Press Information Officer with the City of Newark, NJ, under four mayors (James, Booker, Quintana, Baraka), and writes articles on World War II for World War II History magazine.
Before starting this project, I wrote the award-winning “World War II Plus 55” website until death of its webmaster in 2013 — now turning day-by-day history of World War II series into a series of e-books.
