From the editor
Military Times is the new monthly magazine dedicated to answering the big questions of military history. The aim is not only to bring you action-packed narrative, but to provide all the technical detail, in-depth analysis, and cutting-edge controversy you need to understand not just what happened, but also why. Military Times aims to bridge the gap between the general reader and the world of professional soldiers and military historians.
Fascinating in itself, conflict has shaped the whole of history, and continues to remake the world today. This is the magazine for everyone who wants to understand war, past and present, in all its dimensions.
