Historian, Author And World-Renowned Antique Weapons Collector Michael Zomber

Micheal R. Zomber of Philadelphia, born in Washington D.C. studied and earned a master’s degree in English Literature from UCLA. Zomber’s road to success and recognition for his passion and expertise was not one easily gained without overcoming his share of personal and professional trials.

Zomber was sentenced to serve 2 years and 6 months in prison. While serving this unjust sentence, Micheal remained productive by tutoring prisoners and writing seven books including ‘Shogun lemitsu’ a fiction novel with emphasis on Samurai weaponry. In November of 2008 the United States Court of Appeals exonerated Zomber, and in July of 2009 the charges against Micheal R. Zomber were dropped under the contingencies that Zomber would not seek compensation for wrongful persecution.

Featured as a forty year expert historian on A&E and The History Chanel’s Series ‘Tales of the Gun’ Mr Zomber specializes in sixteenth to nineteenth century European, Islamic, Japanese and American arms.
