Images of WAR -weekly newspaper and booklet set

Only complete to issue #52 in four vols.(it is a 78 set weekly parts in 5 vols).

Second Edition, profusely illustrated in colour and monochrome throughout; all original parts housed in publisher's branded black card binders, all binders, parts and packs in near fine state.

A major partwork from Marshall Cavendish edited by John Pimlott, then Deputy Head of War Studies at RMA Sandhurst. Produced in 'magazine' format, the work as a whole makes full use of its size and space to create a lucid, vivid and valuable account of the conflict.The arrangement of the partwork is complex. The content of each number is arranged in four strands: Background, Campaign, Eyewitness and Home Front. In addition each of numbers 1-52 is accompanied by a separate numbered 'pack' containing a large coloured folding campaign map, a reproduction newspaper of the day and one or more items of ephemera such as reproduction documents (each of numbers 53-78 (26 in all) is accompanied by a separate unnumbered 'pack' containing reproduction newspaper, poster and postcards). i do not have these.

Due to the complexity and ephemeral nature of the companion 'packs' they are rarely found entirely complete. The work was first published in 1988-89 in 52 parts; this was extended to 78 parts of the second and final edition (i do not have the final parts). The work as a whole is a worthy complement to Purnell's 'History'; taken together the two partworks provide an impressive pictorial archive. this set is InCOMPLETE and ARE VERY SCARCE.
