Issue 0 - June 2013
World War II Military History Magazine is a monthly collection of expert articles charting the dramatic military history of the Second World War.
Each issue examines an iconic battle of the Second World War in fascinating detail, combining expert analysis (complete with wartime photographs) with specially commissioned maps and unique colour artwork - putting you in the thick of the action.
Take the monthly quiz and find out how much you actually know about the war, and expand your knowledge with a range of articles; from the grizzly life of a German soldat on the Eastern Front to the history behind the classic film Twelve O’Clock High - and that’s just in our first issue!
This issue’s Battles in Focus cover the last years of the war in three theatres, as the Allies fought their way past German fortifications in Italy, destroyed Army Group B in the decisive engagement of Normandy, and battled to liberate Burma from the Japanese. Also in this issue, we look at the USAAF’s notorious attempt to knock out the Ploesti oil refineries, the early years of the Luftwaffe, and how the US Army recruited the troops for its new armoured divisions.
