Do you purchase your copy of After the Battle from W H Smith?

From our next issue (No. 166), the newsagents W. H. Smith have stated that they will no longer be stocking After the Battle. From past experience, enquirers may well receive responses like: ‘Gone out of business’ or ‘magazine no longer published’ — none of which is the case.

After the Battle is being ‘de-listed’ by Smiths because we are not prepared to pay them the huge up-front annual payment that they are now demanding to access their shelves. This so-called ‘promotional fee’ would be on top of their normal trade discount. If we agreed, it would only increase the cost of the magazine while giving Smiths more profit, and also be grossly unfair to the independent newsagents who have supported us for many years and who will still continue to sell After the Battle.

If you currently purchase After the Battle from Smiths the answer is simple

For over 35 years, After the Battle has been presenting the history of the world's conflicts through 'then and now' comparison photographs. From the Zulu wars, through the First and Second World Wars; to the Falklands, all are researched on the actual battlefield to show how they appear today.

Our quarterly magazine concentrates on the Second World War, the comparison photographs adding a new dimension to recent history. As well as major battles, local actions are explored and other features include the recovery of aircraft and vehicles on land and sea, the making of war films and the preservation of military artefacts.

Published quarterly on the 15th of February, May, August and November, each issue contains 56 pages of text, uncluttered by advertisements, with an average of over 150 photographs.
