War & Society Web Series

The War & Society Web Series was established in 2010 as the LCMSDS Centre Blog to create a space for the publication of articles on Canadian military history.

The Web Series considers the submission of short-form blog posts up to 2000 words, and long-form articles up to 5000 words. Articles in the Series examine a range of topics in Canadian military history, including operational history, the social and cultural history of warfare, and the history of Veterans’ experiences. Readers are encouraged to ask thoughtful questions to spark discussion and provide helpful author feedback.

Author’s papers have been edited before publication by the Website Manager and Series Editor, Kyle Pritchard. For inquiries about the Web Series, please contact [email protected]. Check back in the future for updates on the latest and upcoming articles.
