    EDITORIAL SUMMARY

    Features

    Every issue of Strategy & Tactics, World at War, and Modern War includes 3-4 feature articles plus several shorter articles. Regular topics and columns include New Arenas (Modern War), For Your Information (Strategy & Tactics), Observation Post (World at War), and Weapons of War (Modern War) with fascinating details and unusual events, Media Reviews on books, films and other military history media. On Design with Joseph Miranda, our veteran game designer, explains how we also create simulations of battles and campaigns. We also run periodic reader surveys in which we gather feedback on the topics readers would like to see in the future we use the feedback results in shaping future content and ensuring reader loyalty.

    Our hallmark is that with each and every issue, we produce a board game based on the topic of the lead article which allows premium game edition readers to go beyond just reading about history to see if they can duplicate or better the historical results. These simulation games also provide the opportunity for deeper analysis of battles and campaigns and exploration of the factors that influenced the outcomes.

    Strategy & Tactics magazine is the longest running military history magazine (since

    1967). Readers get much more than narrative stories of history, they get an analytical

    approach focusing on the how and why of battles and campaigns. All feature

    articles are lavishly illustrated with maps and pictures showing the action, along with

    sidebars on personalities, equipment and organization, and unique and unusual events.

    World at War magazine brings the S&T style to a focus on World War II. This unique

    approach goes in-depth on World War II, digging deeper into battles and campaigns,

    and seeking out the unusual and little known events of this vast, worldwide

    conflict. All feature articles are copiously illustrated with maps and phtographs, with shorter articles focused on the interesting

    and often surprising details and events.

    Modern War magazine provides a new perspective on warfare in the modern era (1946-2050). Emphasis is on cutting edge technologies, analysis, and combat tactics as well as national strategies. Modern War appeals to military enthusiasts and history buffs who want greater insight into conflicts

    from the Cold War through the current day and into the near future. Dozens of maps, images and charts enhance the reading experience and allow readers to visualize combat actions.
