About Us

Established in 2015, Howgate Publishing is an independent publisher of military books.

Our books are designed to do two things: encourage more military writers and be relevant for professional military education.​


Our mission

To re-vitalise professional interest.  Encourage more sharing of experiences and narratives. Highlight the importance of reading, reflecting, discussing and writing about the problem of war and warfare to better understand and adapt not just to the changes, but the continuities. Develop more collaboration between the military, academia and associated actors. Expand professional competencies and the intellectual edge of those involved in defence.


Our philosophy

  • Know your area of expertise well.

  • Establish a truly collaborative approach to enhance author-publisher relationships.

  • Publishing an author’s work is a privilege; therefore we continually strive to add value to the research entrusted to.

  • Be exceptional in everything we do.

  • Approach marketing in an intelligently creative way.

  • Always publish the best; authors and readers rely on a solid reputation.


Our authors and audience

Include serving and ex-serving from all ranks and all services, law enforcement, academics, journalists, defence departments, government staff, policymakers and those working with and in military environments.


We are listeners, questioners and collaborative problem-solvers.  We are passionate advocates of military studies, committed to producing quality over quantity and, without distraction, completely focused on our authors and readers.  

At Howgate Publishing we think it’s important to enjoy the publishing journey. 



Howgate Publishing is a member of the Independent Publishers Guild

Important Announcement


The companies that we work with continue to plan their response to the Coronavirus.  We are very grateful that this planning has allowed us to continue with our business during this uniquely challenging time. 


Given that we do not operate from a central office, there has been no disruption to our working environment and we continue to work as usual on a number of exciting new projects for publication in 2020/21.  

The Ingram Content Group, both our printer and distributor, are fortunate to be able to ship out of a number of large facilities around the world and where one has to shut down, they will transfer orders to another.  Their market leading service has a unique role to play in their ability to support rapid, single copy order fulfilment to reduce book travel and handling.


Finally, many of our books are available in electronic format either via Ingram direct or via Amazon which will allow your education and business to continue uninterrupted.

As the British Prime Minister said recently, 'Tis the season to be jolly but also the season to be jolly careful'.


          Happy Holidays everyone
