Veterans’ Day has me thinking about mystery writers who have served in the military, and there are a fair number of big-time names! I thought I’d try my hand at creating an infographic on the subject.

So, here are some of the top authors of classic mysteries who were also veterans – I took some liberties with Agatha Christie. Happy Veterans’ Day, everyone, and if you’re a veteran – thank you for your service!
