Book reviews are an important part of CMH's professional quarterly bulletin, Army History. Accordingly, we invite you to self-nominate to submit a review of a book from among those listed here. (The offerings will be updated over time, so you may wish to return occasionally to the book list.)
To self-nominate, contact Army History's Managing Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate which book from the list you propose to review.
As part of your self-nomination, briefly state your qualifications, referring, as germane, to your education, previous published works, experience in the field, or other information you deem pertinent.
Once the Managing Editor has approved your proposal, he will mail you a copy of the book. He will include a deadline for submission of the draft review.
Upon receiving your draft book review, the Managing Editor will examine it for adequacy. Later, if the review is accepted, he will decide in which issue of Army History he aims to publish it, page makeup permitting; he will inform you of that decision as soon as he can.
Before the review is published, the Managing Editor will read it for factual accuracy; however, the byline on the review makes the reviewer responsible for content. The Managing Editor will also review the draft for copyediting purposes. You will be asked to respond to queries of substance, as well as to review and approve the edits. That said, Army History will be the final arbiter of language usage and style.
