Description Edit | History

John Evans Hill (February 21, 1945 - January 12, 2015) was an American game designer and military analyst who was probably best known for designing the popular wargame Squad Leader, one of the best-selling wargames of all-time, along with the game Johnny Reb III. In the 1960s, he founded the Conflict Games Company which he eventually sold to Game Designers Workshop. In 1978, he was named to the Wargaming Hall of Fame. He was a frequent contributor to the Johnny Reb magazine Charge!

In the 1980s, he began working for the government as a senior military analyst where he worked for 16 years including at Los Alamos National Laboratory. At various times, he lived in Indiana, Virginia, and New Mexico.
