BMMHS is Raising Funds for Blind Veterans UK

All of the Glimpses of War books are available on Amazon - Click on the cover to get your copy

The British Modern Military History Society (BMMHS) have now published two volumes of  Glimpses of War, the  proceeds from which go to the military charity  Blind Veterans UK (formerly St Dunstan’s). All of the Glimpses of War books are available on Amazon. 

Inspired by the first COVID lockdown, when our monthly live talks ceased, we asked our BMMHS members and associates to search their family archives and papers for their own and their family members’ experiences of war time – military or civilian, any war, any role. An overwhelming response has seen in excess of 220 articles and over 400,000 words from across the globe including the USA, Australia and several European countries. Articles range from the Boer War through the two world wars to the more recent Falklands War in 1982 and Afghanistan.

Registered charity in England and Wales (216227) and in Scotland (SC039411). A percentage of royalties will be donated to Blind Veterans UK.

To mark the 40th anniversary, the British Modern Military History Society has compiled a book of memories and stories of those who served in the Falklands. The latest book in the Glimpses of War series, Glimpses of the Falklands War, has now been published and is  available on Amazon.  As with other volumes of Glimpses of War, all profits go to the charity Blind Veterans UK. #blindveterans

‘The Task Force’s victory in the Falkland Islands gave freedom back to the Islanders, releasing a vibrant energy to develop their lives. This fascinating compendium is another triumph in the “Glimpses” series!’
