Author Submissions

Casemate Publishers commissions original, commercial publications by outstanding writers, on both general and more specialist military history. We are dedicated to publishing important and far-reaching military history, with a growing reputation for high-quality, informative, and engaging books. Casemate is one of the leading publishers in the field, covering ancient civilizations right through to modern warfare, defense studies, and military science.

We are currently commissioning titles in military history including biography, defense studies, intelligence, and security in both our trade and academic lists; we are also interested to receive proposals for our Casemate Illustrated, Casemate Illustrated Special, and Leadership in Action series. If your proposal does not fit into any of these areas, we will not consider your proposal.

We are not currently considering any modern fiction titles for the Casemate list.

We receive many unsolicited book-length submissions. While we always welcome new submissions, we ask that you do not send us a complete manuscript. Instead, in the first instance please complete this form.

If you have any technical difficulties completing it, you can instead email the information to

If your book sounds like something we might like to publish, we’ll get in touch. Please be aware that we receive a high volume of proposals and so cannot reply to any proposal immediately. We aim to be in touch about your proposal with an update within two months. We may ask for further information about your project, or sample text. Once we receive your complete manuscript or materials, we may send it out for review.
