The reviews for each edition are bundled in an e-letter that goes out to NHF members and friends, an archive of those e-letters can be found . Readers with an interest in responding to the review (including book authors) are encouraged to post their review in the comments on the book review blog page on our website.
Battles and Book Reviews – Military History and Book Reviews
We regularly receive review copies of new publications about naval history from publishers around the world. The copies are provided to us gratis, with the intention of spurring reviews and informed dialogue about the book. Additionally, we encourage NHF members who have published books to provide us a review copy. Each month, we publish a new edition of Naval History Book Reviews, including a list of books available to review. Potential reviewers may contact Dr. Dave Winkler at with requests to review a book. Books are sent out within 3 days of requests to review being made, and the reviewer is allowed to keep the book for their own collection. Draft reviews are submitted to NHF for an initial read, and comments are returned to the reviewer, working collaboratively towards a final, completed review.
