    I have 2 sets of these-was given a set a few years ago thats bound but the original owner removed the front covers of the weekly parts-the other was bought by me during the 70s as a partwork week by week-there was also a WW1 equivalent but I believe that was only done in the 60s and not re released in the 70s as the WW2 version was-the main drawback of the mags from a current perspective is that much previously secret material has been released since the 70s not the least of which is the existence of the 'Ultra' code breaking program and its results. One magazine I collected from the early 70s to the mid 80s when it ceased was 'War Monthly' (later called Military History)-that was an excellent mag!

    Hello Steve,

    I have the full collection of both the First World War and the WW2 versions. They are an absolutely fasinating read and the WW1 editions explain battles I wasn't aware of. The long and very difficult battles that took place in The Alpes surely must match some of the worst.
