How It Works 

How do hackers, viruses, malware and other computer nasties work? How can you make your computer safer? In issue 136 of How It Works, we’ll be exploring the dark side of the internet as we speak to a genuine hacker about the US military website he seized control of and how today, he uses his hacking skills for good. Also this issue: become a back garden eco-warrior, inside the Bank of England’s vaults, which is worse: smoking or vaping?, 250mph next-gen super trains, and much more.

All About History 

This 8 May we’ll be marking the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe, so for All About History 89 we present a special feature looking at this momentous event from every angle. Peter Caddick-Adams gives his insight on how the war was won and the final months of the conflict, Julie Summers analyses life on the homefront, Richard Toye brings us the view from Churchill’s war room and Keith Lowe travels across the continent to reveal the aftermath and fragile peace in the months that followed.

History of War 

Although Nazi Germany’s borders had been infiltrated prior to March 1945, the first significant thrust into the Fatherland came with Operations Plunder and Varsity. Masterminded by Field Marshal Montgomery, this offensive would resemble the ill-fated Operation Market Garden months earlier – spearheaded with a massive airborne assault, supported by armour. However, unlike the disaster in the Netherlands, the crossing of the Rhine river would prove to be a resounding triumph of military engineering and planning, marking the beginning of the end for the Third Reich.
