Britain At War

A history of conflict

As the UK’s best-selling military history title, Britain at War Magazine is dedicated to exploring every aspect of the involvement of Britain and her Commonwealth in conflicts from the turn of the 20th century through to the present day. With at least 116 pages in every issue, Britain at War prides itself on well-researched and eye-catchingly designed historical content, aiming to provide new and fresh perspectives on Britain’s wars.

Each issue of Britain at War, sister publication to FlyPast, is packed with the latest news all about events and discoveries from around the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth in addition to detailed features covering combat on land, air or at sea. Each includes an analysis of a major historical event and typically draws on emotive personal accounts from those involved – from both sides.

Other core content includes; ‘Reputations’ – critical assessments of the Commonwealth’s greatest admirals and generals; ‘Image of War’ showcases stunning flashes of history captured on rare archive film; and our monthly ‘Hero of the Month’ feature, as selected by Lord Ashcroft. Unafraid to engage with the most difficult subject matters, we also include bold and hard-hitting pieces on the darkest episodes of conflict.

From the Somme trenches of The Great War to a lone Australian warship blasting her way out of a Korean War trap. From the Royal Navy’s mighty HMS Hood of the Second World War to the British Army’s ‘Desert Rats’ in the Gulf. Cold War V-Bomber standoff, deadly submarine missions, heroic feats, desperate air actions and valiant last stands. Spitfire, Lancaster, Ark Royal, and Centurion. Canada, Australia, South Africa, India. Britain at War readers can experience it all.

So, just how did a pair of New Zealand Navy frigates alter the course of World War Two? What was Churchill’s reaction to Pearl Harbor? Want to know what one veteran RAF pilot experienced flying Harriers in the Falklands War? How did the daring and deadly British commando raid on St Nazaire unfold?
