Description Edit | History

Joseph M. Balkoski (born June 13, 1954 in New York City) is a game designer and author who has also been the Maryland National Guard command historian.

Balkoski also worked in the computer game industry as a way to have a steady income. In 1999, he joined BreakAway Games, a company run by Doug Whatley and old board gamers. He also worked for Microsoft until leaving the computer game industry in 2003.

Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the comic strip Peanuts, stated that his book Beyond the Beachhead "is quite amazing... If you want to know what D-Day and Normandy were like, from private to general, from rifle to tank, from beginning to end, this is the book for you."
