Society for Military History Conference Mentoring Program Deadline

Folks--

The SMH Conference registration page (http://louisville.edu/history/events/smhc ) includes a choice for MA & Ph.D students to have a chance to meet with a mentor at the conference ( a senior scholar in military history).  The deadline for the mentoring program is March 1, so if you’re interested, be sure to register for the conference before then.

regards,

David Silbey

 

Re: Herrera on Smith, 'William Howe and the American War of Independence'

This definitely sounds like a book I need to read. A few years back O'Shaughnessy, in his wonderful volume _The Men Who Lost America_ attempted to make the case that for the British, the American Revolutionary War was essentially unwinnable. I loved his book (essential reading for students of the Revolution!) but disagreed -- I think the Howe brothers might have won the war in 1776.
