The Vandervort Prizes of the Society for Military History recognize outstanding journal articles that contribute to the field of military history.

In previous years, the Vandervort Prizes (previously the Moncado Prize) recognized the best article in each issue of The Journal of Military History.  The Trustees of the Society for Military History have decided to expand the scope of the award, which honors the JMH’s longtime editor, the late Dr. Bruce Vandervort.  The prize now recognizes at least two of the best articles published in The Journal of Military History during the previous calendar year, as well as up to two articles published outside of the journal.

All articles published in The Journal of Military History are automatically eligible for the Vandervort Prizes.  The selection committee is seeking nominations of outstanding articles published in other journals.  These should be articles published in peer-reviewed academic journals, in English, with a publication date of 2020.  The journal itself need not focus on military history, as we are seeking to recognize scholarship that shows the intellectual breadth of our discipline. Self-nominations are permitted. One nomination per individual, please.
 
To nominate an article for consideration, please submit a copy of the article (preferably as a PDF) and complete citation information to aseipp@tamu.edu by January 15, 2021. For more information, see https://smh-hq.org/vandervortnom.html
