OK, sorry. Long silence punctuated only by self-promotion. Been working on The Next Book. Just about finished proposing it. More to come, and soon. It’s a big departure for me, but it should prove to be fun. For me, at least.
In the meantime, here’s my latest piece in Military History Quarterly, sans some of the illustrations that make articles in glossy history magazines so darn pretty. I’ve been wanting to write about the battle of Lundby (Second Schleswig War, 1864, Denmark vs. Prussia) for years and years. It’s hard getting Americans interested in it, though it’s a fascinating (and important) battle. But thanks to my friend Bill Horne at MHQ, it’s in print now.
