Published 22nd February

In Issue 52, read the first-hand accounts of men from the Coldstream, Grenadier, and Scots Fusilier Guards, who marched to battle at the Alma, Inkerman and Sevastopol. Their incredible stories give us just a sense of what life was like serving in one of the 19th century’s most horrific conflicts: the Crimean War.

Elsewhere this month, you can read yet another first-hand veteran account, this time of Brigadier Brian Parritt, who served as an artillery officer in the Battle of the Hook during the Korean War. Also, you will find the first of a new series on the 1918 Spring Offensive – join Professor William Philpott of King’s College London, as he explores why the final German offensive of WWI was doomed to failure.

Issue 52 also has a fantastic opportunity for aviation fanatics – you can win two tickets behind the scenes of the Fleet Air Arm Museum. Cobham Hall, the museum’s reserve collection, is opening up its doors for a limited time this year, allowing access to some of its rare treasures, including the world’s first aircraft carrier.
