Massive set of 220 issues of the British weekly magazine "The War Illustrated", each approx. 34pp. 4to., comprising the entire run of the magazine during World War II, with the first issue published Sep. 16, 1939, and the 220th November 23, 1945. The magazine, edited by Sir John Hammerton, served as a photographic record of the week-by-week progression of World War II. Vol. 1, No.1, for instance, reports on the sinking of the liner "Athenia" by a U-boat, the evacuation of children from British cities, the fall of Danzig and Warsaw in Poland, the mobilization of France. It also features a two-page illustration of the ships of the Royal Navy, and a supplemental "Map of Wartime Europe". The issues may show toning, wear, pencil ownership inscriptions and some loose pages, still very good overall.
