The 'Illustrierte Kriegs Kurier' was a German magazine published in several languages. It was primarily meant to be sold in the occupied territories of Belgium and France as well as abroad. Captions and text were in German, French, Dutch and sometimes English. Being a German publication, it of course stressed the Central Power's point of view. Though publication dates are not given on the individual issues, it is apparent that the magazine must have started publication either during or immediately after the siege operations at Antwerp. That would mean in beginning in September or October 1914.
