Issue Cover

After The Battle  |  Issue 177  


THE BATTLE FOR KOBLENZ — The German city of Koblenz lies at the confluence of the Mosel and Rhine rivers. In March 1945, as a side show to the main offensive by Lieutenant General George S. Patton’s US Third Army through the Saar-Palatinate region, the US 87th Infantry Division launched an attack on the city. In just two days of street-fighting, the Americans cleaned out the entire city. Karel Margry describes this amazing feat. Tragedy at Lake Poursollet — Jean Paul Pallud describes how on August 13, 1944, troops of the German 157. Reserve-Division made a surprise attack on a small force of French Maquis fighters at Lake Poursollet, high up in the Oisans mountains south-east of Grenoble in the French Alps. The Axis-Held Island of Rhodes — The Greek island of Rhodes — the largest in the ‘Dodecanese’ (meaning a group of 12 islands) — has throughout history been coveted by many empires. Gail Ramsey explains the period that it was occupied by the Axis. The Guns of Navarone — Following the transfer of the Dodecanese, including Rhodes, to Greece in 1947, the Treaty assured Turkey and Italy that the islands would be demilitarised. Thus in 1960 it was a diplomatic coup for Carl Foreman — then exiled from America under the anti-Communist clamp-down — to get permission to bring to Rhodes a large contingent of men and material from the Greek army to make this classic film.

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.
