Official Histories

Official histories are the High Streets of military history. Written by teams of military historians with unrivalled access to official and sometimes secret sources, they are for other, later historians to pick over, disagree with, elaborate upon, or dismiss. But they cannot be ignored. The Naval and Military Press publish a full range of official histories of both world wars and of many other conflicts and campaigns. Start your study of military history here with these often out-or-print titles only available form us.
