He has published widely on the Holocaust, Nazi military strategy, British interwar military strategy, as well as biographical studies of Adolf Hitler and Nazi military commanders. His book “Inside Hitler's High Command” won the Society for Military History 2001 Distinguished Book Award.

A frequent presenter at academic conferences and invited speaker at dozens of colleges and universities in the United States and abroad, Dr. Megargee also sits on the Department of the Army Historical Advisory Committee and is treasurer of the United States Commission on Military History.
