Welcome to the May 2012 edition of the Bugle! From the amount of participation on the main talk page, it looks like the Military History Project is still growing at a relatively rapid rate! With the increased traffic, however, more eyes are needed to respond to the amount of posts. We encourage you to go to the page and assist at least one person, in the hope that everyone will get at least one response! As ever, we also encourage you to visit the MILHIST Announcements page and help out with some of the many article reviews and work requests listed there.
In our Interview section, this month's Bugle features the opening salvo in a new series, the "Article writer's guide." We will be looking into different topic areas related to Milhist by bringing in leading editors from those fields, both Milhist and non-Milhist, and asking them penetrating questions about how they started in those fields. We will also look into their best practices and ask for their advice on preparing a quality article in that field. We hope that these will be helpful for those looking to start writing or those looking to switch topics. This month's feature is biographies, and the next few months will tentatively see battles, fortifications, military formations, ships, and vehicles. If you have a topic you would like to see here, please do not hesitate to leave a message on our talk page and we will do our best to accommodate you.
