The Illustrated War News (first issue Volume 1, August 1914), was a weekly magazine during the First World War, published by the Illustrated London News and Sketch Ltd. of London, England.[1]


Upon the outbreak of the first World War the magazine Illustrated London News began to publish illustrated reports related entirely to the war and entitled it The Illustrated War News. The magazine comprised 48 pages of articles, photographs, diagrams and maps printed in landscape format. From 1916 it was issued as a 40-page publication in portrait format. It was reputed to have the largest number of artist-correspondents reporting on the progress of the war.[1] It ceased publication in 1918.[2]
