The Military Gazette is a vivid portrait of military life through the centuries, as lived by the generations of men and women who took part. We eavesdrop on some of the most turbulent and colorful events, in times ranging from the bow and arrow to the atomic bomb. We draw on the first hand experiences of Englishmen and women as they provide a fascinating and often moving description of the British at war.

In the Army edition, we follow the fortunes of the British soldier from the Roman invasion of Britain to his defeat at Dunkirk, from the terrible horrors of the Battle of Culloden to his courage against the Zulus at Rourke’s drift.
