The September edition of the Military History Carnival is now up at Military History and Warfare. Thanks to Alex for doing a great job. Details of the October edition are still to be confirmed.
[Edit: the next edition will be at Chronologi Cogitationes on 20th October. Submissions can be e-mailed to blakemore_9 [at] hotmail [dot] com or use the submission form. Hosts for November onwards still needed.]
This is the 14th Military History Carnival, with a special theme of Contested Boundaries. Today is also the day that Bloggers Unite encourages bloggers to write about human rights (hat tip: Mark Stoneman). I might post something on that theme later today if I have time (and I probably won’t have time), but this carnival edition gives plenty of attention to human rights issues.

The 13th MHC is now up at The Cannon’s Mouth. In this case 13 isn’t unlucky at all as Ken has done an excellent job.
The next edition will be coming home to Investigations of a Dog on 15th May. This is a special edition with a theme of Contested Boundaries. As well as territorial disputes, we’d like to see posts about how war complicates boundaries of race, class, gender, sexuality, species etc. Above all we want to question the boundary between peace and war. If you see anything on these themes, please submit it. Or you could even write something if you feel inspired.
Submissions don’t have to be on these themes – you can still submit posts about any aspect of military history, war and armed forces. The usual limits apply: posts mainly about wars that happened after 1 January 2001 are not eligible.
