The details


Thomas Walter Chittum is an American author, military analyst and former mercenary from New Jersey, now living in Washington state. He served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Chittum also fought in the Rhodesian War and the Croatian War of Independence as a mercenary.

Life and Career

Chittum was born in 1947. During 1965 and 1966, he was a private first class and a soldier in the US Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam, where he participated in many numerous combat operations. 

He was briefly a soldier in the Rhodesian Territorials sometime in the 1970s. 

Chittum was also a soldier in the Croatian army in 1991 and 1992 when they were fighting for their independence from the Serbs. First, he served in a recon unit composed mostly of Dutch mercenaries. Then he served in a mortar unit made up of a mix of British mercenaries, other European mercenaries, and regular Croatian soldiers. 

Chittum is also a published author. In 1993, he authored Civil War Two The Coming Breakup of America.

He is now retired and lives in Maryland with his wife and step-son.


Chittum predicts that the United States will soon face Balkanization and a second Civil War based on racial conflicts. He plans to move to upstate New York because it would likely still be a Caucasian-controlled area after the American Southwest effectively becomes part of Mexico by 2020 due to immigration.

Chittum was a speaker at the First Annual Conference on Racial Separatism in 1998, which also featured Jared Taylor, Robert Brock, and Don Black. Those at the conference speculated about looming world and race wars. The now deceased Willis Carto suggested that the United States use funds that he said would otherwise go to Israel to re-settle African-Americans in Africa, and Brock stated that Carto's plan would lead to Africa putting a man on the moon within three years. Brock also advanced the claim that both black and white nationalists needed to be racists in order to keep their identities intact.
