Kirk Munroe was a well-traveled writer and journalist who was born in Wisconsin, educated in Massachusetts, began his career in New York City, and finally settled in Florida. Once there, Munroe's proximity to Cuba likely influenced the point of view he employs in ""Forward, March"", a large part of which details the efforts of an American agent in Cuba during the war
