Military History Monthly

The history of warfare written by experts

Military History Monthly aims to bridge the gap between the general reader and the world of professional soldiers and military historians. Published each month, the magazine brings to the reader not only action-packed narrative, but it also provides all the technical detail, in-depth analysis, battlefield guides and eye-witness accounts needed to understand not just what happened, but why.

Each magazine is packed with expert features - from contributors such as Sir Max Hastings, Richard Holmes, Sir ian kershaw, don Mccullan and dan Snow, to name but a few - plus reviews, regular opinion columns and up-to-theminute listings of military events across the country.

The magazine's main focus is British military history and the period after 1914, but it also covers big stories from other eras and parts of the world. Military History Monthly is distributed throughout the UK via WHSmith, selected independent newsagents, supermarkets and via subscription.
