Hello and welcome to History Zing!
My name is Joshua Gilbert, but I write under the names of J. Gilbert, J.R. Gilbert, and Shogun 144 and variations thereof. I hope you enjoy what you find here and God Bless!
This website is meant to be a showcase for my work as an historian. It is my hope this website will prove educational to visitors. You will find articles here covering military and political history. I specialize in China (the Han through Qing dynasties), Japan (Mid-Heian through Meiji), and the Middle East during the Age of the Crusades. I also like Late Antiquity through the 13th Century in Europe, favoring the British Isles and Byzantium. You can expect to see articles here from outside my specialization on occasion.
