Zheng He and Ming China: The Mariner and his Times
History has seen few like Zheng He, so powerful in his time, so completely forgotten after his death, and so fascinating for historians of our time. Six centuries after his voyages, the spirit of this ancient mariner has returned to redefine its place in history. (by Poirot)


 
With Spring Comes the New Year
It's that time of year again! Iranians and non-Iranians all over the world have started the arduous task of cleaning. Norouz, the Iranian New Year (March 21), is an event celebrated around the world. (by Prsn41ife) We the editors wish you a Happy Iranian New Year!

Vintage Vaults - the Original Code Talkers
This 1919 issue of Vintage Vault I once again reveals a little fact which may take Nicholas Cage, Navajo Indians and the makers of Windtalkers by surprise... (by Paul)


 

From the Editors:
Thanks for reading the third issue of AE Magazine.

The idea of the AE Magazine was a New Year's Resolution of Hugoestr to improve the diversity of historical knowledge and discussion on the site with a journal of stimulating reading material.

In each issue we've tried to expand and improve the publication. In Issue 2 we tried to develop the magazine from an All Empires Journal into a vibrant and diverse history magazine representing all the modern forms history takes.

With this issue we plan to move the magazine up another gear. We hope to develop the project particularly in terms of audience. Over the next month we will launching the magazine web wide. The magazine will no longer be simply a newsletter for forumites but a free amateur publication hopefully on a footing with the established magazines whom all have the disadvantage of costing money and requiring signing in to view.

We will be seeking help in this, and hope members of the forum will participate in the publicity campaign.

- Paul
