1 min read

01_MT6_0311The latest issue of Military Times, on sale today, is arguably the best yet.

Key features in this packed March issue include:

Zulu :  The British Empire’s Shock Defeat
It was one of the greatest imperial defeats of the 19th century. An army of native warriors with spears surrounded and annihilated a British force of 1,500 men armed with modern rifles. How did it happen?
With a new book just out, we asked Zulu War expert Ian Knight to reassess the Battle of Isandlwana for our lead feature this month.
Richard Holmes on Waterloo
The historic farm complex at Hougoumont on the Waterloo battlefield is under threat, and top military historian Richard Holmes is leading the
campaign to save it. We have his account of its importance in the battle and why it must be preserved.
The history of the Submarine
The First World War created a new paradigm of modern industrialised warfare. As we approach the centenary, we begin a new occasional series
looking at how technology has transformed war over the last century.
Keith Robinson launches the ‘techno-war’ series with an account of the development of the submarine.
Surviving Arnhem
He endured the machine guns at Arnhem bridge, was hit by a grenade, and taken prisoner by German soldiers. Just how did Private Bryan Willoughby survive? This is his eyewitness account.

Also in this issue:

– The works of renowned war photographer Don McCullin

– Book reviews, including Peter Snow’s To War With Wellington

– Battlefield guide to Verdun, from Conflict Archaeologist Matt Leonard
