British Period Magazine "The War Illustrated" on North African Subject

I thought I would bring out some interesting British WW2 period magazines showing how the English population was informed of war news about North Africa. This first one is dated June 1943 and has several articles on the Axis surrender in Tunisia with some interesting illustrations. The cover shows a British soldier loaded with souvenirs while escorting POWs. Hope you all will enjoy! big_smile  Barron
