'1914 Illustree' was a Belgian news magazine specially founded to print war news. After several issues, Brussels, where the publishing company was located, was occupied by German forces. Hereafter all copies had to be approved by German officials, which put a somewhat different slant on how things were reported and printed. After the siege of Antwerp, '1914 Illustrée' (soon to become 1915 / 1916 / 1917 etc ... Illustrée') published many interesting photos of the battlefields and present situation in and around the city.
