Philip Padgett examines history by applying skills developed during 40 years of analytical support to national security deliberations and international negotiations. From Washington, he supported teams negotiating five international treaties and agreements. He went on to develop integrated analyses of the East-West military balance, nuclear doctrine and deterrence, and arms control compliance monitoring. These were used by senior leaders for insight into emerging concerns and as bridges between national policy needs and solutions emerging from new technologies. From 2001 to 2011, Phil’s endeavors expanded to homeland security. He helped to develop and implement national-level counterterrorism exercises and to create all-hazard national preparedness plans and guidance. On retiring, Phil served several years in FEMA’s Reserve Corps including deployments to respond on the ground to natural disasters such as Super Storm Sandy. Phil received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Management Science degrees from University of Maryland University College. A Navy veteran, he resides in North Bethesda, Maryland. He is working on a sequel to his first book, "Advocating OVERLORD: The D-Day Strategy and the Atomic Bomb."
