Issue Cover

After The Battle  |  Issue 135  


THE CAPTURE OF BREMEN - The north-German port of Bremen was one of the last great cities to be taken by the British Army in the European campaign, being captured in the last week of April 1945. Karel Margry describes how the city fell to a two-fold attack by three infantry divisions, supported by tanks and special armour, and aided by a massive tactical bombardment by nearly 800 aircraft of RAF Bomber Command. Pickett/Hamilton Fort Recovery Robin J. Brooks tells how a prime example of Britain's wartime anti-invasion defences was dug up from RAF Manston (recently renamed Kent International Airport): a retractable pillbox for airfield defence which was known as the Picket/Hamilton Fort. .. read more The Secret Tunnels of South Heighton From June 1940 to August 1945 the Guinness Trust Holiday Home, a large mansion on Heighton Hill outside Newhaven in East Sussex, served as a Royal Navy headquarters establishment known as HMS Forward. Here, in 1941, a top-secret naval intelligence centre was set up to monitor all marine movements and hazards such as hostile aircraft off the Sussex Coast. Geoffrey Ellis describes how a large underground complex of tunnels was excavated in the chalk-rock hill on which the house stood to provide its staff with a safe and bomb-proof working area. The Tommy Roberts Story Gail Parker tells the story of Thomas 'Tommy' Harbaugh Roberts, born in Elkhart, Indiana, on May 6, 1916, who joined the USAAF and was posted to the South Pacific where he joined up with the 2/16th Australian Infantry Battalion and his actions earned him the Silver Star, awarded posthumously to his father after the war.  read less

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 October 1, 2018
