Who we are looking for?
Military History Online is always looking for writers who know their history
and would like to share that knowledge with others.
What we are looking for?
If you have written a piece on military history or are thinking about writing
one, this site is for you. If it has to do with military history, please
submit it. If you've written a book review or would like to write one, please
Do I retain ownership or copyright of my articles?
Absolutely yes. As a writer, you retain 100% full copyright,
ownership and credit for all of your writings. MHO purely hosts the
articles, nothing else.
How long will my articles stay online?
Forever. They will stay online as long as MilitaryHistoryOnline.com
exists (so far, since 1999 and counting). All articles will remain linked
and categorized so readers can easily find all articles. They will only
be removed if they are found to be incorrect or if the author requests it.
How long has MHO been online?
Since 1999. It started out with a focus on the American Civil
War, but has branched out to include all other periods.
Why does MHO exist and why would MHO host my articles?
Military History Online is a privately-owned site which I created in
order to bring together other like-minded military history enthusiasts.
It is online in order to share articles/writings/ideas and learn from each
other. Since I was a linguist/analyst in the USAF and am now a
programmer, I am able to merge my two passions in life (military history
and programming). I'm able to host your articles in a professional and
permanent manner and also gain valuable programming experience by constantly
adding to the site.
Please submit files as Microsoft Word, rtf, or as a text file.
These should be sent to MHO as attachments in e-mails.
Length of Article
Your submissions can be of any length. In fact, the longer the length --
the better. I have never turned down an article for being too long, but I
have turned down articles for being too short. I have received articles
that were hundreds of pages long and these articles are still online today.
Footnotes and bibliographies are strongly recommended as many readers will
want to see the source of the information.
How long do I have to complete my article?
Take as long as you like on the battle. A battle might take a couple
months or longer. As long as I know you are working on it, that is
fine. You can send me each section as you finish it. That way, we
can get the completed sections online and you can see what the site will look
