Military History Carnival #26
Welcome to the February 27, 2011 edition of the military history carnival. The Military History Carnival has had something of a nomadic life, and I'm aiming (with much thanks to HNN) to give it a more permanent home at Cliopatria, publishing one every three months. There's certainly space within that for other folks to host an MHC, if they're interested. In any case, today's Carnival, #26, has a good number of submissions for your perusal, organized topically
American Civil WarNesher presents Girl Impregnated by the Bullet (Civil War Legend) posted at Best Hoaxes and Pranks.
World War I Era
Jonathan Beard submits Save HMS Caroline: The Last Survivor of the Battle of Jutland at Military Times
World War II Era
Alan Baumler submits the history of a double murder in Japan during the American occupation at Frog in a Well
J.R. Clark presents A Vietnam War Clerk's Diary: INTRODUCTION: Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, 15 June 1962 posted at A Vietnam War Clerk's Diary.
Second Gulf War
Katie Sorene presents 7 Most Fascinating Asian Battle Sites posted at Travel Blog - Tripbase, saying,"A selection of fascinating Asian battle-sites for the historically minded traveler including the ancient temples of Angkor, the highlands of Laos and the inexplicable atrocity that was Hiroshima."
That concludes this edition. The next Military History Carnival will be May 27th at HNN. Submit your blog article for that edition by May 24th using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.comments powered by Disqus
