Off to War



News magazines dedicated to reporting the war were very popular in Great Britain and elsewhere. There were litterally dozens of titles available to choose from. Even at as relatively late a date as May 1915, new titles were created and put on sale. Often with the opening issues, special color plates or centerfolds were included to help boost sales. In the first three issues of the new magazine 'Newnes Illustrated' these patriotically inspiring color plates of troops leaving for the front were included.
