This blog hopes to facilitate communication between the rarest of beasts, early modern European military historians (EMEMHians – but please give me a better idea for a name). Specifically, this informal academic blog seeks to:
Create a better sense of community among EMEMHians who are widely dispersed geographically and often securely-wedged within specific national historiographies.
Make it easier to find and discuss EMEMH historiography, research, methods and resources.
Promote EMEMH to a broader audience, although I hope the core of this blog will consist of academically-inclined participants.
