The destination for history



The diversity of our military history list means there is something here for everyone. From ancient battles involving Roman soldiers, through the Battle of Hastings and Agincourt, to World War II and modern engagements, no battlefield is left unexplored, no operation ignored.

Find out about poignant campaigns in our Battle Story series: the background and events of battle, the weapons and tactics, the human story and the legacy. The British Army, Royal Navy and RAF are covered widely, but so are many individual regiments, and Remembrance for all – ally and enemy – is given fitting emphasis.

War affects everyone, young and old, rich and poor – whether you are a member of the armed forces, a general reader interested in the human experience of war or a military specialist, there will be something here to excite your interest.
