I am not sure just how Gavin Robinson does it but he has managed to find yet another excellent new military history blog.
Historic Battlefields has been set up by a student currently studying for an MA at the University of Birmingham’s Centre for First World War Studies.
Having been through the MA process myself, I can’t help wishing that I had known about blogging at the time. For two years my life became dominated by military history essays, books and lectures. Each day I was learning something new, it makes me cry to think about all those wasted blog posts!
In the UK the MA route is growing in popularity and we now have number of institutions providing excellent courses. However, I sometimes wonder what value, beyond general interest, these courses actually provide with there being so few military history based jobs.
