Issue Cover

After The Battle  |  Issue187  


THE ALLIED CAPTURE OF HANNOVER. Karel Margry tells us how on April 10, 1945, the US 84th Infantry Division attacked the German city of Hannover. The operation formed part of the last Allied offensive of the war in the West, the mighty sweep from the Rhine to the Elbe. Murder at RAF Beccles. During the war, dances were held everywhere, especially forming a regular feature of service life where officers and other ranks could mix freely. At RAF Beccles, two members stationed at the airfield attended two different dances on the same night. Wednesday, November 8, was cold with the threat of snow . . . and was a day that ended in the death of a young WAAF servicewoman and the subsequent execution for the airman who murdered her. The story is described by Detective Chief Superintendent Edward Greeno. The Fate of the Surviving U-Boats. Derek Waller tells us how the Potsdam Agreement and the decisions of the associated Tripartite Naval Commission (TNC) were critical elements in the story of the disposal and destruction of the Kriegsmarine after the end of the war in Europe, as they formed the basis of the actions that led to the ultimate fate of all the U-Boats that survived the war and surrendered at the end of it. From the Editor — My Mother's War.

The Best Then & Now Military History Magazine

After the Battle began as a project in 1973 just 28 years after the end of WW2, the first issue was launched at the start of 1975 from that research. The magazine spawned into a world leading military history magazine. I recall reading archived issues of the magazine my mates father had collected, many years later you can download current and archived issues all the way back to the original. Although not focused exclusively on WW2, it is predominately a WW2 history magazine and still the best out there, highly recommended. Reviewed 01 October 2018
