The magazine that brings you the history of warfare, written by experts.
The compelling narrative of Military History Matters, and its authoritative detail, transports you to the thick of battle, from the 20th-century to the ancient world.
Was Jutland the battle that won the First World War? What really happened at Waterloo? Should the Anglo-Saxons have triumphed at the Battle of Hastings? What went on inside Hitler's 'Wolf's Lair'? In each issue you can expect more than just reported stories: our extended features tell you what really happened, why decisions were made, and, importantly, who really won.
You'll find unparalleled coverage in every magazine, with the latest research and detailed analysis from world-renowned historians. Examine the strategy and tactics used in battle and read eye-witness accounts, all put into context with detailed battle-maps and comprehensive timelines.
And that's not all – in addition to the main features, you’ll find sections dealing with the culture behind the conflict, as well as book reviews, events, news, battlefield guides, and more – all accompanied by striking graphics and illustrations.
