Welcome to the Society for Military History

Established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 the Society for Military History, the Society is devoted to stimulating and advancing the study of military history. Its membership (today more than 2700) has included many of the world's most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.

The Society will host a virtual conference on November 13-14 featuring a number of panels that had been accepted for the now-cancelled conference in Washington, DC. Additionally, there will be a graduate student roundtable on Friday evening, and former SMH President Jennifer Keene will give the keynote address on Saturday evening. The SMH Council has authorized funding to make this event free for SMH members – so please mark your calendars and stay tuned for registration information. See the forthcoming Fall newsletter for a draft program.
