Re: Hand Grenade of the Month May 2017 - The Hitler Problem

I am under the impression that since this is a military oriented forum the term is perfectly fine and judging from some of the responses and interactions I think some of the posts genuinely cause a stir and healthy debate. All aspects of war could in some degree fall under the nasty category and this is an unnecessary "safe-space" idea. My only complaint is that generally it hones more towards military subjects that are less inclusive of specialties such as mine, Middle East, and lean heavily on U.S. military history.

Call for Papers: Marine Corps History

Marine Corps History publishes twice a year, and the editors are currently looking for new articles and book reviews on all topics within the long history of the Corps. Articles must be at least 4,000 words, footnoted according to Chicago Manual of Style, and focus on some aspect of the Corps either directly or indirectly, including foreign marines, women in the military, and joint operations.
