The magazine was published by Harnois, a French publishing company, in association with the Royal Armouries. Published in the United Kingdom, it was marketed throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. The first issue had the cover-date of September 2003. It was published monthly, until lower-than-forecast subscriptions caused Harnois to withdraw their support from the title. The final issue (no. 17) was published in January 2005.
The first editor was Dr Philip Shaw, who helped to launch the magazine. His final issue was Issue 4, after which Dr Timothy Dawson took over. Dr Dawson remained until the magazine was finally withdrawn from sale. The editorial board comprised a number of well-known historians, including Stephen Turnbull, David Nicolle and experts from the Royal Armouries, Guy Wilson and Karen Watts.
MHM accepted articles and features from historians, experts and writers from around the world. Notable contributors include:
James B Harr III, Chris Walton (both of the University of Leeds)
