Customer Reviews

Love This Magazine

Like several other reviewers, I find that I really look forward to each month's issue. The recent promotion that offered past issues for a reduced rate was terrific and I took the opportunity to fill-in all the back issues that I was missing. As an American student of history and one who has traveled and worked professionally in England, I am always intrigued by British interpretations of not only their history--but ours as well. The special issue focusing on our Civil War is a prime example. I have not experienced any of the technical problems that frustrated some earlier reviewers. Apparently the latest update corrected most -if not all - of them.

At last!

I discovered this magazine when I was living in Swindon for a year. When I returned to the US, finding it was challenging. I was delighted to find the digital version and it does not disappoint. The articles are as well-researched and thorough as I remember, and the interactive bits where one can find more information are excellent. It's absolutely brilliant!

Best all-around history magazine

Simply love the concept that makes you love history whether it is about medieval times WWII or something else. Best among all
