Warfare Magazine: Latest Issue

The latest issue of Warfare Magazine is out so here is a brief summary of some of the content. Take a closer look by following the link below

31 July 2012 saw the 95th anniversary of the start of the Third battle of Ypres, known as Passchendaele. The Allies’ campaign at Passchendaele took place over several months in 1917, fighting for control of the ridges south and east of Ypres, West Flanders

Warfare has featured several articles over the duration of the Passchendaele campaign, including Britain’s Last Tommies at Passchendaele and Passchendaele: the German Experience, the most recent addition being a look at the Fall of Passchendaele and the end of the battle in November 1917

Warfare had the pleasure of meeting author Bryn Evans during his recent book tour, and he has written a short article to mark the 70th anniversary of Operation Torch and the East Surreys role in Tunisia, Sicily and Italy, along with his experience of meeting the granddaughter of one of the veterans; Operation Torch 70 Years On – An Anniversary to Connect the Generations

There are two new featured charities now live, looking at the work of Thank You Soldier - a website where the British public can send messages of support to serving members of the armed forces, and The War Graves Photographic Project working in association with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to photograph every war grave and memorial worldwide

Happy reading!
