ANN: Passing of Professor Jeffrey Grey

Folks--

It is with great sadness that H-War announces the passing of Professor Jeffrey Grey, a member of the H-War Advisory Board, and current President of the Society of Military History.  Jeff was not only our colleague but also our friend, and we mourn his loss.  The SMH has created a tribute page where people can leave their memories:
