Issue Cover

After The Battle  |  Issue 176  


The Allied Capture of Trier — The city of Trier, located in the Rhineland, is the oldest city in Germany. Situated on the banks of the Mosel (Moselle) river. On March 2, 1945, Trier was captured by the US 10th Armored Division of Lieutenant General George S. Patton’s US Third Army. Karel Margry tells the story. Naming the Iwo Jima Flag-raisers — The picture taken by Associated Press war photographer Joe Rosenthal on top of Mount Suribachi on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945 has always had a very special place in American history. In June 2016 the US Marine Corps formally announced that the identities of two of the men in the picture had in fact been identified incorrectly. Karel Margry explains how the record has been put straight. The Shelling of Patton’s Nancy HQ — Jim Sudmeier and Jérôme Leclerc describe how in early October 1944, the main headquarters of General Patton’s Third Army established itself in the city of Nancy in north-east France, setting up in military barracks and other buildings in the city. Almost as soon as the Americans arrived, and throughout the month of October, Nancy became the target of German long-range heavy-calibre railway guns. Murder at Comrie Camp — An audacious plot to break out 7,000 prisoners from a prison of war camp in Devizes, Wiltshire, was foiled by an informer. As a result 27 of the ringleaders were sent to Cultybraggan Camp in Scotland which was used to house die-hard Nazi prisoners. The prisoners suspected one of their own as the stool pigeon and took their revenge on him. After torturing and killing the man they were arrested and tried for his murder. Five of the men were found guilty of his murder and sentenced to death. We explain in depth the situation leading up to this and consequently the biggest mass execution to be held in Britain since the 1880s.

Great magazines for both young and old
   The Best Then & Now Military History Magazine Reviewed Monday, October 1, 2018 SUBSCRIBER
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.
