Edward M. Strauss
Edward M. Strauss is an independent scholar of history and an ardent Francophile. He is the translator of Poilu, the memoirs of Louis Barthas, a WWI French infantryman, published by Yale University Press in 2014. The New York Times called it “a classic account of the war, a day-to-day chronicle of life in the trenches and a richly detailed answer to the seemingly unanswerable question: What was it like?” Strauss has had careers in magazine publishing and fundraising for education, and was formerly publisher of MHQ / Military History Quarterly. He is a graduate of Princeton. He and his wife Anne live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
