The British Commission for Military History was founded in 1968 as the national branch of the International Commission for Military History. It serves as a forum for the discussion and promotion of military history in the broadest sense, that is naval and air as well as army aspects without any specific time limits.
The BCMH holds at least three conferences every year. Recent themes have included "Powering War - the place of Logistics in War", "The Seven Years War" and "Britain and Scandinavia in the Second World War".
There is a regular newsletter, Mars & Clio and an annual battlefield tour.
The membership comes primarily from those working in military history in universities, museums & archives, defence and the armed forces as well as the media, heritage and cultural studies and private individuals.What's New
