Robert J. Edwards was a career Army officer in the active component, the reserves and the National Guard. He was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant of Armor through the Reserve Officer Training Corps at the University of Nevada, Reno, in 1976 and then served as an armor officer and foreign area specialist in a variety of command and staff positions, both in the United States and in the Federal Republic of Germany. After serving two active duty tours with armor battalions in Germany, he was assigned to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he taught German for nearly five years. That was followed by a stint as a technical translator for Siemens in Munich and service with a reserve unit there and, in 1993, duties as a mobilization and readiness officer for the Nevada Army National Guard through 1998. That same year, he became a managing partner with J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing in Canada, where he had a hand in translating, editing and laying out nearly 50 titles related to World War II. In 2008, he became a freelance translator and editorial consultant, working closely with Stackpole Books on more than 15 titles in the intervening years.
Long an avid collector of World War II memorabilia, he has co-authored two books on the subject of uniforms of the German armored forces. His interest in armored reconnaissance stems from practical experience as a scout platoon leader and selection for command of a National Guard cavalry squadron, as well as a fascination for the "eyes and ears" of the commander that dates back to his youth. He lives in Navarre along the Emerald Coast in the northwestern part of Florida, along with his wife, Ramona, two dogs, two cats and an ever encroaching army of squirrels in his backyard.
"Scouts Out contains everything you ever wanted to know about Wehrmacht armored recon forces in WWII, plus a ton of interesting information you never even realized you wanted to know, all handsomely illustrated." (Stone & Stone 2014-02-23)
