Articles and Book Reviews


Do you wish to send in an article of interest us?

Our aim at BMMHS is not only to provide a series of talks and events that will appeal to anyone who has an interest in 20th and 21st Century military history but to welcome the contribution of short written articles from you including the relevant photos and documents. These could include contributions from fellow enthusiasts, authors, academic’s research articles and topics of interest.
We would be very happy to post on the website reminiscences or ‘the story’ of family or friends who have served. For more information, contact us on
