War Illustrated/Great War
Essential reading if your ancestors fought in the Great War
This month sees the publication of the first 5 volumes of The War Illustrated on CD-ROM, as part of a 9 volume collection of the periodical which ran from 1914 to 1919. The War Illustrated stands alongside The Great War, a collation of another contemporary magazine already available from Genealogy Supplies.
If you are interested in WWI then these magazines are fascinating to read and look through. Both give great insight into the war in terms of the experiences of British and Allied soldiers, and also the changing shape of society at home. They also evidence the public need to document and analyse the First World War, with its historically unprecedented loss of life and sheer geographic range of action.
The War Illustrated has a massive selection of photographs and illustrations, and so gives a greater pictorial background to events. Most issues contain a roll of honour, listing war deaths with photographs of the soldiers. Details of medals awarded for exceptional bravery or success are also included. Pitched to entertain as well as inform, its coverage is very eclectic in range and tone, taking in many one-page incidents and human interest stories. Important battles and regiments that played a pivotal role are described in recurring features. The War Illustrated also boasts a selection of celebrity columnists, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and H. G. Wells. The war’s progression by land, sea and air is detailed; and with articles and photojournalism that take in every aspect of the war, the sheer scope of The War Illustrated makes it an immensely valuable document.
Each issue of The Great War is scanned in full colour. Photographs and illustrations are included alongside information that was gathered by a team of war correspondents both at the front and at home. It features writing on all the conflicts and also has pictures and reports from behind enemy lines. A sober look at the war, its details of specific battles, military manoeuvres, political decisions and their ramifications give you a sensitive and constructive overview of its general progression.
The Great War and the first 5 volumes of The War Illustrated are available now from www.genealogysupplies.com just select the category Great War to see the full range of CDs that cover this important period of our history.
The remaining volumes of The War Illustrated will be released over the coming months (9 volumes in total). Each volume is only £9.95 plus P&P per order
