Now well established and much respected, The Great War magazine is published bi-monthly
in January, March, May, July, September and November of each year (the subscription
year runs from September to August).
The 76-page, A5 magazine is only
available via subscription by mail order and is not available in the shops or from third parties.
The magazine appeals to the widespread general interest in the Great War, and
publishes contributions on all aspects of the war. No sphere of interest is
precluded and we feature a wide and eclectic mix of material. Contributions in
all areas, from letters and prose to memoirs and histories, are judged on
content and interest to readers - editing is applied to all features to ensure high
standards are maintained throughout.
Alongside the personal accounts of those
who served we also publish military and service accounts and in local history
aspects often overlooked by larger publications, such as the Home Front, Pals
and Service soldiers and battalions, animals, women, grandfathers' and
grandmothers' stories, etc. Nothing is precluded and submission is open to
Some selected trade advertising is
accepted, but space for this is limited as the emphasis is strongly geared
towards providing good quality content. The publication of the magazine is
funded solely by its subscribers, and is not viewed by the publisher as a
vehicle for generating advertising revenues.

Among the unique selling points of this
publication are that it is only sold to subscribers, so our readership has a
dedicated interest in the subject matter, and also that it is not sold
'retail', which means we do not have a 'sale or return' policy which requires
unsold copies from each issue's print run to be pulped.
The majority of
our subscribers also purchase dedicated binders and build their collections by
purchasing back issues (thus providing longevity for advertisers) - we also
have a policy of maintaining back issue stock levels and reprint as required to
ensure no back issue goes out of stock.
