Society for Military History Conference Mentoring Program Deadline


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.

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.
