Readers Reviews - what people say about us


The value of After the Battle publications to historians, students and the general reader is that they provide a truly unique line of research. The extensive, carefully selected and beautifully printed illustrations are never less than top quality and are keyed to the fastidious and methodical research for which ATB is famous. I buy everything they publish; they never let you down.

LEN DEIGHTON, LONDON

I have been interested in learning about the Second World War for quite a time, after my grandfather had told me of his exploits during the war in the RAF. I think After the Battle is a very good magazine and I would advise anyone who is interested in the Second World War to buy After the Battle.

PAUL BRIES (15 YEARS OLD), LANCESHIRE

I wanted to write to commend you and your team for the continued excellence of After the Battle magazine. The Stalingrad issue is truly astonishing. Your people has pulled it off again and this must surely rate as one of the greatest achievements in After the Battle’s long history.

KEITH MAJOR, WEST SUSSEX

Your magazine has provided me with days and days of wonderful, rewarding searching, as well as some fond memories. I received copies of hard bound volumes 1 & 2 as a gift in 1979 and I was hooked.

WILLIAM MAXWELL, KAISERSLAUTERN, GERMANY

Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much I enjoy your magazine and the many hardback books that I have purchased over the years. They were very, very helpful on me finding specific buildings and houses on my trip to the Normandy area.

LARRY FRANTISAK, USA

Battle of Britain and The Blitz are truly magnificent works of research and an inspiration. They should be made compulsory reading for everyone.

STEVEN ATKIN, ESSEX

Aloha! Your Wake Island article has been well received here. Our Commanding Officer here was particularly impressed with the quality of the reproduction of the photos.

LOUIS HITCHCOCK, HAWAII, USA

Keep up the good work – the diligence and intensity of your researchers is breath-taking and after so many years every quarter still brings forth a treasure trove of new research and military history that has been buried and in danger of total loss but for your efforts.

CHRIS HOLEHOUSE, SURRY

The concentration of information and completeness of coverage in Panzers in Normandy is quite unique. Within its covers, I have learnt things that thirty years of study had not previously unearthed.

GERALD MANSFIELD, NEW YORK, USA

I just wanted to let you know that I think this is THE finest magazine regarding WW2 locations that has ever been printed. The pictures of a before and after location are simply fantastic and the photographers you utilize are really great.

AL DESIMONE, MISSOURI, USA

Not only was I amazed about the many details and the thoroughness of your story, it was also presented professionally.

MANFRED WEISE, GERMANY

Just a short note to congratulate you on your fine publication, After the Battle. Of all the military magazines and periodicals that I read, yours is by far the most interesting and most professional. Keep up the good work! I look forward to every issue.

GEORGE M. BLACK, USA

As someone who has been professionally involved in printing, publishing and historical research for the past 16 years, I'd like to express my appreciation and thanks for the astonishing achievements of the After the Battle team. The standards you have set are unprecedented and your contribution to the recorded history of WW2 unrivalled. But then you already know that, don't you?

N. TREVENA, CORNWALL

As a long time subscriber to your outstanding magazine (from the very first issue) I would like to take this opportunity to extend warm congratulations for each and every issue which is awaited with anticipation and read avidly from cover to cover.

W. A. HASKELL, GERMANY

I have been an avid reader of your magazine for the last 20 years. In that time I have been consistently impressed with the quality and objectiveness of your research. Your books are just as excellent. They make you feel as if you are actually there — nothing can surpass your publications.

PETER IMBERGER, MELBOURNE

Turning the pages of your books is like turning back the days and years to remember as if it were yesterday.

P. D. DAWE, Ex RAFVR

How you have done it, I have often wondered! It is outstanding that you have come this far, maintaining a standard that is the definitive of its subject. History has been served beyond expectation.

GERALD MANSFIELD, BEM, Ex-GUARDS ARMOURED DIVISION

May I say that I think your story on the making of the film A Bridge Too Far is quite excellent. I am amazed at how much detail you have managed to unearth.

MAJOR-GENERAL R. E. URQUHART, CB, DSO

The article on Shepton Mallet is absolutely fascinating and I will be making it widely known to staff.

THE GOVERNOR, H.M. PRISON CORNHILL

If an Australian reader of mixed British-German parentage may state what he's found the most pleasing in your publications, it is the many instances of reconciliation between former enemies that your storylines and research have brought forth. To me, such things are the 'icing on the cake'.

JOHN ROACH, NEW SOUTH WALES

The latest After the Battle is excellent so much so it nearly caused a divorce at our house. You see I could not put it down. I am most grateful to you for publishing them.

BRIAN WALKER

I look forward to each issue and am usually 'lost' in it for a day. I am sure that long after we are long gone they will use it all as a reference work.

S. FENNELL, SUFFOLK

The tremendous search for accuracy in After the Battle is outstanding, particularly when so much effort is devoted to relating each account to the people who were involved.

R. P. ITTER, SWINDON

The one thing I find most interesting about After the Battle is the analytical detective work you undertake. The facts themselves are always of interest but the technique you and your colleagues adopt, I find most absorbing.

J. F. AYLARD, HERTFORDSHIRE

As an ex-pat who spent his childhood in England during the war years, I am deeply interested in the history of the Second World War and each issue never fails to fascinate and intrigue me.

MARK KENYON, AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

Without exception I have found the articles interesting and informative and have been fascinated by many of the 'then and now' photographs. The dedicated research that goes into each subject is most impressive.

R. S. BARWISE, BRISTOL

Thank you for these fine books and congratulations on producing such a terrific magazine.
