[cite web |url= |title=Minutes from the De Re Militari Business Meeting |publisher=De Re Militari |date=March 8 2003 |accessdate=2008-03-06] He has also been awarded the Royal Historical Society Alexander Prize medal and a Society for Military History Moncado Prize for his articles.

His most recent book is "Soldiers' Lives through History: The Middle Ages." A podcast of a lecture based on part of that book, focusing on the soldier's experience of battle, has been posted by NYMAS, at He is also the editor of "The Wars of Edward III: Sources and Interpretations" and "The Military Revolution Debate," and co-editor of [ "The Journal of Medieval Military History"] and the essay collection "Civilians in the Path of War".

Although Rogers' work on Military Revolutions has found favor with many historians, some (including Kelly DeVries [Kelly DeVries, “Catapults are Not Atom Bombs: Towards a Redefinition of ‘Effectiveness’ in Premodern Military Technology,” "War in History", 4 (1997): 454-70; cf. C. J. Rogers, “The Efficacy of the English Longbow: A Reply to Kelly DeVries,” "War in History", 5 (1998): ] and John Stone [Journal of Military History; Apr2004, Vol. 68 Issue 2, p361-380] ) argue that his analysis suffers from "technological determinism."
