Issue Cover

After The Battle  |  Issue192  


In this issue Jeffrey Plowman and Perry Rowe cover The Battle For Orsogna. In early December 1943, the 2nd New Zealand Division, advancing northwards from the Sangro river in central Italy, came up against Orsogna, a small town perched on the edge of an escarpment overlooking the wide valley of the Moro river. Staunchly defended by German infantry, tanks and paratroops, the position proved a very tough nut to crack. Five times the New Zealanders launched a determined attack on the town — on December 2, 7, 15 (twice) and 16 — but each time they were thrown back, with heavy losses in men and tanks. A final attempt, aimed at outflanking Orsogna from the north, bogged down on Christmas Day without achieving the objective either. For the New Zealand Division it constituted its first defeat after a long series of successes and its most costly battle in the Italian campaign. Next we have our From the Editor feature for this issue, followed by the fascinating story of the Liberty ship The Richard Montgomery. Loaded with over 6,000 tons of war stores, she arrived in the Thames Estuary en route for Normandy but while at anchor off the Kent coast at Sheerness, it ran aground on a sandbank and broke in half. Finally in this issue we have The Battle for Festung Küstrin. Tomasz Zgoda tells us how from late January to the end of March 1945, the German city of Küstrin, located at the confluence of the Oder and Warthe rivers, held out against the Red Army onslaught, forming a major obstacle for the planned Soviet advance to Berlin. Under siege by two Soviet armies, its garrison doggedly held out for over two months, persevering even after the Russians finally completed encirclement of the city on March 22. It took two major offensives, one in early March to capture the part of the city on the east bank of the Warthe, and another in late March to capture the rest, before the German defenders were finally subdued.

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 Monday, October 1, 2018
