Call for Papers
In the Spring of 2019, Army University Press will publish historical case studies regarding the “The Last 100 Yards: The Crucible of Close Combat in Support of Large-Scale Combat Operations.” Chapters will address close combat operations within the last 100-yards, since 1914, against enemy forces in support of and shaping for division and above combat operations. In addition to offering a general narrative, each chapter will discuss the objectives of the close combat actions and the combined company to platoon level techniques employed to achieve those goals and the degree of success achieved.
We anticipate full chapters to range from 15 to 20 pages (approx. 3,500 – 7,000 words), including endnotes and images. Submissions should follow conventions of American English and Chicago Style Guidelines.
