Anthony Tully's interest in the Imperial Japanese Navy is long-standing and wide-ranging. Like coauthor Jon, his interest began in childhood, and his interest in Midway, in particular,was inspired by Walter Lord's Incredible Victory and its careful attempts to reconstruct events. This attention to detail mentored the pattern of all of Tony's subsequent art and writing. A frequent contributor to journals and periodicals on matters both nautical and topical, Tony has been published in the U.S. Naval War College Review, Naval Institute Proceedings, Naval History, Warship International, the Dallas Morning News, Today's Christian Man, and Kudzu magazine. Likewise a member of the 1999 Nauticos/NAVO expedition, he has been an adviser to other undersea expeditions researching naval battle sites in the Philippines and elsewhere. Since 1996 Tony has been a major contributor to and other online resources on the Imperial Navy. A graduate of Texas Tech University, with extensive postgraduate studies, Tony works in the information technology and support field. He lives in Dallas, Texas.
