You are just a few moments away from discovering more about the history of the Second World War than you ever imagined.
Dear Fellow WWII Enthusiast:
Allow me to introduce WWII History Magazine, the completely original, exquisitely produced coffee table magazine that’s worthy of being named after the most important war in all of history. No matter how long you’ve been fascinated by the Second World War, and no matter how much reading and research you’ve done, WWII History is sure to bring you a new and fresh perspective on the Greatest of Conflicts.
The first thing you’ll notice is that WWII History looks and feels more like a book than it does a magazine. Instead of being just a handful of glossy papers stapled together, WWII History features a straight, flat spine. Known in the publishing industry as “perfect binding,” this book-style binding allows you to store your collection of WWII History on your shelves along with the rest of your history library. The volumes stand up straight and the name, date, and ID number on the spine make it easy for you to find the volume you need each time you turn to your collection.
…And collect them you will, because WWII History is more akin to the permanent reference in your library than the regular magazines you just flip through and discard.
The artwork, for example, is carefully culled from selective sources the world over. Dozens of rare photographs, colorfully crisp paintings and meticulously detailed drawings bring the events they depict to life. Even the pages themselves are thicker, glossier, and much more durable than those you find in most other magazines.

In-Depth Features, Unique Departments
And I still haven’t mentioned the most valuable and unique aspect of WWII History: the features and regular Columns you’ll find in each issue.
Like me, you’ve probably spent time and money on World War II books and periodicals that disappointed you because they only contained information you’ve already seen. So our editors and contributors approach each new article with one simple editorial guideline in mind: Keep it fresh. We carefully apply the test of originality to each piece presented for publication. If it doesn’t pass, it doesn’t get in. No exceptions.
And while our editors and contributors work under a strict demand for originality, they have no such guidelines for length. Our editorial position is to take as much space as needed to fully explain what is most important, different, or interesting about the subject. Generally, our articles are longer than those you’ll find in most history magazines—not padded or overblown, just a little longer; simply because they explain their subjects in greater detail than most others.
What kind of articles? Well, in just your first few issues of WWII History you are likely to find stories like:
- 101st paratrooper Norwood Thomas, who describes what it was like to jump into Normandy on D-Day, make a second jump into Holland, and fight the Germans at Bastogne
- on the island of Namur, Marine Lt. John Power was already wounded and bleeding from the stomach, when he blasted open a Japanese bunker and emptied his carbine. Shot again in the stomach, and in the throat, his Marines rushed forward to finish the job. Power was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously
- P-52 Mustang pilot Jim Carl describes trying to survive his first five combat missions over Europe with the Red Ass Squadron
- during spectacular aerial battles at Midway, battles at Midway, outnumbered American Navy pilots fought bravely to attack Japanese carriers
- like the Polish horse-mounted cavalry, American horse cavalry courageously took on Japanese tanks during the fight for the Philippines, with predictable results
You’ll also drop in on WWII History‘s regular Columns:
- Profiles, where you’ ll meet the commanders who led, as well as the soldiers who fought and changed the course of history
- Ordnance, where you’ll field-test the hardware employed by the both the Axis and Allied powers. From tanks and planes, to some of the most advanced, and unusual weapon concepts, such as the development of radar, concrete battleships, the iconic Jeep, and the Nazi terror weapons
- Top Secret, where you’ll read about clandestine operations, the men and women who fought undercover, and tools like the German Enigma machine
- Insight, where we feature fascinating, and little-known stories that seldom make the history books
