I'm honoured to have been asked to be a member of the new Society for Military History Blog. The other members are Lieutenant Colonel Robert Bateman, Mark Grimsley, Jamel Ostwald, and Brian Sandberg. I've been involved in a couple of previous group blogs; this one is obviously more focused in topic (albeit 'military history' is not particularly narrow!) and will also be more structured in the sense that we'll be sticking to a schedule, with a post every couple of days. It's good to see the SMH taking advantage of social media to promote academic military history and I'll be doing my best to help it do so.
