First World War Newspapers 26th September 2014

Illustrated War News & Illustrated London News

We have added 108 issues of The Illustrated War News, along with a further 192 issues to our Illustrated London News collection, covering the First World War.

These newspapers combined photography with the use of graphical illustrations from eye witness reports to give readers a flavour of what was happening at the front.
