David C. Isby is a game designer, author, attorney, and national security consultant. He has written or edited 20 books and over 350 articles on national security, including three books on Afghanistan. He is also a former correspondent for Jane's Intelligence Review.

In 1970, he became the first employee of Poultron Press which went on to become Simulations Publications Inc. (SPI) where often worked as a game researcher and developer. He was also an editor of Strategy & Tactics.

Isby has testified before both House and Senate committees, has appeared on many television news programs, and has lectured at many military colleges.
