  • The Battle of Brest - In a major article, Jean Paul Pallud describes how in the first week of August 1944, American armoured forces reached the outskirts of the port city of Brest, beginning a siege that would last for six weeks and ultimately involved three American infantry divisions.
  • The Ministry of Food Home Guard - During the war, there existed a unique unit within the Home Guard. This eventually became known as the 11th (Ministry of Food) Battalion, Denbighshire Home Guard. Patrick Hargreaves explains.
  • German Concentration Camps Factual Survey - Karel Margry takes us through the story of this powerful documentary film, shot in the summer of 1945, as the full horror uncovered by the Allied liberation armies from the East and West is shown.
