Naval and Military Browse All Titles

The Naval & Military Books department deals in books, manuscripts, artwork and on occasion paraphernalia relating to the entire history of warfare. In recent years, our focus has become increasingly directed towards original documents, diaries, letters and sketchbooks. 

One of the smaller but more dynamic groupings at Maggs, the Military history department is managed by Hugh Bett, within the Travel department.
