We have been collecting The War Illustrated for a while now to ensure that a full set is preserved for the future. There are quite a few collectors doing this and it’s an invaluable source of information, if only from a propoganda point of view! Sometimes a whole set of just over nearly 300 copies comes up at auction, but we mostly buy them in small amounts and in varying quality. Some copies are so damaged we daren’t open them.
We are hoping to add a few of the stories to our website and blog in the near future as the stories are fascinating and maybe “you were there”.
