This week on Warfare!

We had a fantastic response to the launch of our new website last month; an impressive number of visitors to the site, taking the time to have a good look around the new format, a surge of new fans and followers on Facebook and Twitter and lots of really positive feedback letting us know that the new set up is much easier to use, which was our hope for the new Warfare. One of the handy things about being accessible via mobile devices is that you can read an article or catch up on the news if you have a spare few minutes, rather than loading up an entire magazine. However, if you do get interrupted mid-article, Warfare will remember where you got to on the page and save your place for when you are ready to continue reading. Helpful!

With this in mind, our thoughts and subject matter have focused on some of the events of the Second World War.
