Hi monsstar

That's a terrific source index. Do you have references for the issue number associated with each article? And could I just clarify the publication's title? I have the first two articles in the Italy sections, but I sourced them in the Army Quarterly.

Its old name was The British Army Quarterly Review, know its called The British Army Review, If anyone is after the Vol number let us know and I will see if I can find it.

This is really very helpful; thank you for the labour involved and for making its result available to us.

I has a little giggle at the typos (and I know I am about to throw stones in a greenhouse!) but I love the thought of S-D's recollection of 'Le Gateau': shades of Allo Allo and the 'gateau in the chateau'!

Hello Roy

Thanks for posting, its a useful list and I have acquired photocopies of some of them over the years. However, I'm just wondering if you have your wires crossed with journals of similar name. The Army Quarterly (AQ) was published from 1920 and at some point in the 1970s or 80s became the Army Quarterly & Defence Journal (AQ&DJ) . I remember seeing copies of the latter in the early 1990s (when I was working for a defence contractor) and it remained a quarterly journal, A5 size with red covers. A number of the ones you have listed from 1914 to 1917 look like the series of 18 articles entitled 'The Other Side of the Hill' that were written by the official historian GC Wynne (though he was not then identified at the author). Those articles were recently compiled and published by Helion as a book titled 'From Landrecies to Cambrai' with Wynne being credited as the author.

The British Army Review (BAR) is still being published and is an A4 size journal. I remember seeing copies in my time in the TA in the early 1990s and its content included a lower proportion of military history than AQ but more about doctrine and training. I remember seeing material about the SA80 rifle (as it was then called), auftragstaktik, the challenges of recruiting and training in the TA. I have a feeling that it may be Restricted. It has some useful recent articles on WW1 (e.g. by John Husey) pulished in the 1990s/2000s. Unfortunately I have never had the time or opportunity to go through it systematically.

There is a complete set of bound volumes of AQ / AQ+DJ on the open access shelves of the University Library (UL) at Cambridge. The editions of BAR are classified by the UL as government publications and are only accessible on request in the room that holds that type of publication.

Another very useful journal is the Journal of the Royal United Services Institute (JRUSI) which has been published since the late 19th century and is still going. The interwar volumes are very useful and have a lot in common content-wise with AQ. There is a full set of JRUSI on the open access shelves at Cambridge too.

Another useful journal is Fighting Forces (FF) which was certainly being published in the 1930s but I do not know of its publication history. It has some really useful WW1 articles such as accounts of minor actions involving the BEF. There are bound copies of these in the UL at Cambridge, though they have to be requested. As a result I have never had the chance to have a systematic look at it.

The Evolution of a Revolt. (Lawrence) 1

A Set Piece. (Lawrence)2


A chap came into Clouds Hill last week and said his father was with Lawrence at Aqaba and that it was all listed in the Army Quarterly of April 1921.  I think it might be in the Lawrence 2 Article listed in themonsstar post of 2008.   Would we be able to get a cooy from the IWM?
