Military History Carnival #2

I don't think I mentioned previously that on 13 May 2007 the "Military History Carnival #2" went live on the Victoria's Cross? blog. In the world of blogging, a carnival is a post which a blogger agrees to piece together a collective post from submissions made by fellow bloggers. In this case, the subject is, obviously, the second carnival devoted to military history.

This issue of the carnival provides a brief text and links to a wide variety of posts on military history from around the world. The second carnival mentioned posts dealing with historiography, the use of the internet in military history, the state of military history, and subjects about or from countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, Russia, China, Korea, Japan, India, Switzerland, Spain, France and Greece. The only Canadian military history subject matter was my own post on my return from my trip to Vimy Ridge in early April.

Alright, so it's not entirely about Canadian military history, but that's not the point.

The third military history carnival will be posted on June 17 on Behind Antietam on the Web. Submissions can be e-mailed to bdowney@aotw.org or use the submission form.
