About Despatches Magazine

Inspired by people’s experiences of war, Despatches draws inspiration from our archives as well as respected historians, artists and social commentators.
From essays to book reviews to cutting-edge photography, Despatches profiles the work creating the most interesting debate about war and conflict.
Despatches is published twice a year, in December and May. You can grab your copy at any of our museum shops, or enjoy it free of charge if you’re an IWM Member.
