Hello, and welcome to the final edition of The Bugle for 2012.
It's been another big year for WikiProject Military history, and voting for this year's "Military Historian of the Year" award is currently under way. Voting has also commenced for the inaugural Military History "Newcomer of the Year" – this new award aims to recognise editors who have just begun to make a major impact on military history article writing in the last 12 months. You have till 28 December to register your votes!
A highlight of this month's edition of The Bugle is an interview with five editors who work on relatively neglected topics in which they discuss what motivates them to write articles in these fields, the difficulties they've faced and the rewards from working on these topics. In addition, we have the usual wrap-up of articles which have recently been promoted to Featured and A-Class status, reviews of two recent books, and a look back at some of the events of 2012.
Last, we'd like to wish all members of the project Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
