We are seeking contributions on the First World War and the Near East. The area of interest is from the Balkans to the Persian Gulf; the time of interest is from before the war to the current activies. We are looking for a fresh look at these events. If you want to write about Lawrence of Arabia, tell us something that's not in the movie. The Relevance of events back then to today is an important theme we want to explore. An article about how the US Marines who captured Kut in 2003 learned from the fiasco of 1915 would be bully. Contact me through the link below if you have something you would like to see published.
