What is The Ward Room?

The Ward Room is an essential resource for authors and those who require accurate information to write realistically about the US military, firearms, and other weapons.

What kind of information does The Ward Room provide?

The Ward Room provides technical consultation that enables authors to effectively depict contemporary military and tactical operations. This includes up to date information on procedures, strategic methodology, rank structure, weapons, basic unit complement, patrolling methods, equipment, vehicles, and many other topics related to today’s military forces. For many authors, this technical consultation is especially necessary to write about the proper use of firearms and other weaponry.
