“Projecting American Power in the Second World War”

The lecture will examine how a country with an army of fewer than 200,000 soldiers as the war began expanded that force to 8.3 million by 1945, while also building two-thirds of all ships afloat and making half of all manufactured goods world wide. Yet, the war absorbed barely one-third of America’s gross domestic product, a smaller proportion than that of any major belligerent.

Reception to follow the lecture, 7:00-8:00 PM
Hilton Atlanta, Grand Ballroom D.

Lecture and reception open to all SMH members, guests and those attending the AHA.
No charge for either lecture or reception.

Now Live: JMH Tracker

The Journal of Military History has launched its new online manuscript submission system, JMH Tracker. The direct link to JMH Tracker appears on the Submission Guidelines page: http://www.smh-hq.org/jmh/submissions.html. Authors who wish to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication by the JMH can now set up individual accounts and submit their manuscripts via this link. The JMH editorial staff will receive an automatic notification whenever a manuscript has been uploaded, and authors will be able to log onto their accounts to track the progress and status of their submissions.
