History Goes On
The British Commission for Military History
Founded in the 1960s, the BCMH is the UK branch of the International Commission for Military History. Its members come from all walks of life, from academics and members of the armed forces, to veterans, students and those who just have an interest in military history.
The BCMH is at the forefront of efforts to support research into conflict across history. Its journal, the British Journal of Military History, can be accessed for free at www.bjmh.org.uk. Our members benefit from discounted rates at conferences and talks we sponsor or run, as well as discounts on military history books, and access to research funding and competitions. For more information on the BCMH, and its activities visit www.bcmh.org.uk
The BCMH is committed to supporting the military historians of the future, and has recently unveiled its ‘Next Gen Network’, offering advice, training and networking opportunities for BA, MA and PhD students. To join the Next Gen Network for free, email Zack White at
