MHQ The Quarterly Journal of Military History is November's Magazine of the Month

On November 11th much of the world will honor the men and women who have served in their nations' militaries. In the United States this holiday is known as Veterans Day, though its also been known as Armistice Day, Rememberance Day, or Poppy Day. The holiday began as a reaction to the end of the First World War, or the War to End All Wars, and is set on the date that the Germans signed the Armistice which ended the war.

You can read more about the end of the Great War and the signing of the Armistice in these books:

In honor of Veterans Day, Carnegie-Stout has selected MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History as our magazine of the month. MHQ is a publication of the Weider History Group, which publishes a number of magazines on historical, often military, topics. According to their website, MHQ "takes you on an exciting journey to the world's greatest battles and campaigns over the last 5,000 years, from ancient warfare through modern Iraq." Their website includes such features as daily history quiz.
