Welcome to the Naval History app, which is free to download. Naval History is a bi-monthly magazine. It’s your instant connection to the most intriguing questions, theories, and musings that continue to fascinate naval historians. This app also brings you firsthand accounts of war at sea and explores naval strategies that have shaped nations.

In addition to the magazine's content, we offer a few special interest compilations of authoritative and influential works are also available (currently iPad only). Special Interest Issues draw on our vast collection of content at the U.S. Naval Institute—the professional journal Proceedings, first published in 1874; the Oral History program, more than 50 years old; the Naval Institute Press, publishing books since 1878; the Photo Archive, which includes more than 500,000 images; the award-winning Americans at War video interview series; and of course, Naval History magazine.

Bugs still not fixed!

And the bugs are still not fixed! Many of the issues are still unable to be download (most of 2013) even though I've had a subscription to naval history since January 2013. Then there are still other random issues over the last two years that will not download for me. I hate this app, it's like playing Russian roulette each time a new issue comes out...will It download or not.
