Welcome to the Society for Military History

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.

The Web Site Has Changed!!

The Society’s web site has been overhauled using the principles of Responsive Design. This means that every page on the site will automatically reconfigure itself to match the screen size of the device on which it is being viewed. Some familiar design elements have been carried over from the old site, but this redesign should make the site easier to use on phones and tablets, no matter who manufactures them, what operating system they use, or what size screen the device has.
