Lawrence Holsworth, Founder and Editor-in-Chief:

“Strike-Hold!” is the motto of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment in which I served during the 1980′s, and seemed a fitting name also for a site related to all things current and historical about elite units, special operations and airborne forces.  My background includes writing commissioned briefing papers for a leading UK defence consultancy, helping to launch a successful European military magazine, being the assistant editor of a high-quality European airsoft magazine, and also having more than 20 years experience in marketing and communications for leading companies in a variety of industry sectors – including, most recently, several years experience in the defence and tactical gear and textiles market segments.
