Welcome to the February 2014 edition of the Bugle!
Possibly due to the combination of the Christmas break, unusually cold weather in the US and unusually hot weather in Australia, January and the first weeks of February have been a relatively quiet period for the military history Wikiproject. Lots of editors have been chipping away at articles and reviews though.
This month's edition of the Bugle includes a wrap-up of the articles and other content which were promoted to featured and A-class level during January, as well as book reviews by Hawkeye7 and Nick-D. The Bugle's editors are keen to see the return of op-eds in future editions of the Bugle, and editors who have something they'd like to see published are warmly encouraged to post their submission at the Newsroom or contact Ian or Nick.
The contest department completed its 80th round of competition last month. A total of 45 articles were submitted by 7 editors. Sturmvogel 66 came first with 79 points from 13 entries to receive the Chevrons, followed by Ian Rose who earned the Writer's Barnstar with 42 points from 6 entries. Honorable mentions go to Lineagegeek (37 points), Tomobe03 (25 points) and Parsecboy (25 points). Djmaschek and Zawed also fielded entries. Please submit any articles you are working on for this month's contest now.
