Re: Iron Cross Magazine

Delighted to have been asked to take on the editorship of this exciting new high-quality German military history magazine, covering the period 1914 - 1945.

We will always be interested in considering proposals for feature articles from forum members.

Do get in touch if you have anything to offer!

Re: Iron Cross Magazine

Chris,

Thank you for posting this.

Andy,

My suggestion is to have some articles about the inter-War period (1920 to 1938). A lot of designs were proposed and built, and were sold to other countries.

Best regards to you both,
Ed

Re: Iron Cross Magazine

Yes, the plan is to cover the period 1919 to 1938 - including, for example, the Spanish Civil War.

We also want to cover different, unusual or rarely tackled subjects and with high quality imagery and illustrations.

Re: Iron Cross Magazine

Sounds fascinating. I’d enjoy seeing an article about the German military assistance to China in the interwar period.

Re: Iron Cross Magazine

Is there a preliminary list of what future issues might cover, even if it is just a list of basic ideas? If there is an outline of topics to be covered then people might be able to contribute images or items that they have to help flesh out articles.

I believe you can choose to have a digital download version when you take out a subscription.
