Military History is a spin-off TV network of History that focuses on military history. The network is owned by A+E Networks.

Military History features programming that looks back at some of the significant battles in history as well as programs that profile key individuals such as generals, soldiers and spies. Documentaries and series give the viewer an insight into how battles were fought and the lives of those who fought them. The network is currently available within the United States, and previously in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Much of its programming focuses on World War II; this same programming had earned The History Channel the appellation "The Hitler Channel" up until these programs were transferred to Military History.

Like its mother network, the network, which had been branded as the Military History Channel dropped the "Channel" branding on March 20, 2008.

On March 20, 2010, Military History was added to Virgin Media on channel 236.[1]

In the UK and Ireland, the network was replaced by its sister network, H2, from May 4, 2013, on both Sky and Virgin Media.[2] It occupies the same electronic programme guide slots that Military History did on both platforms.
