The latest issue of BBC History Magazine is now on sale. In our new edition Denis Judd examines how George VI’s ordinariness inspired the love of the nation.
Elsewhere in the magazine, Martin Johnes considers how history has impacted on the construction of Welsh national identity.
The January issue also features Sheilagh Ogilvie, Markus Küpker and Janine Maegraith who explain how German citizens were once forbidden to consume a multitude of desirable goods, and examine the economic consequences.
Also in this issue, Roger Moorhouse takes a look at the Wannsee Conference, a meeting of German officials that is widely regarded as the point that the policy of genocide was arrived at.
Meanwhile, Thomas Asbridge explains why Christian attempts to lift the Holy Land from Muslim control in the Middle Ages were doomed to fail.
Our January magazine also includes Professor Kelly DeVries who speaks to Charlotte Hodgman about eight places related to the life of Joan of Arc.
