The intellectual home for military historians worldwide

Established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 the Society for Military History, the Society is devoted to stimulating and advancing the study of military history. Its membership (today more than 2700) has included many of the world's most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.

Members of the Society know that the Journal of Military History is a first-rate academic journal, with every issue containing cutting-edge scholarship and insightful book reviews. It is certainly nice to have that affirmed elsewhere, so it is with great pleasure that we note Tom Ricks' recent blog posting on Foreign Policy: Why the fine 'Journal of Military History' is the opposite of 'International Security': The tons of interesting facts I learned.
