The latest issue of BBC History Magazine is now on sale. In our new edition Anna Whitelock explains how Elizabeth I consolidated her reign with anniversary celebrations.
Elsewhere in the magazine, Victoria Harris analyses some of the thousands of letters sent by ordinary Germans to Adolf Hitler.
The June issue also features Dominic Lieven, who argues that it was more than the Russian winter that halted France’s mighty army in 1812.
Also in this issue, Antony Beevor talks to us about his new epic history of the Second World War.
Meanwhile, Edward Spiers, Jeremy Crang, and Matthew Strickland investigate the stereotype of the wild Scottish warrior.
Our June magazine also includes Kate Williams, who considers the impact of Edward VIII’s reign on Queen Elizabeth II, and David Carpenter shows how Richard I created the notion of the ‘regnal years’.
