All volumes are illustrated throughout.
All three magazines are in the publisher's original paper wraps. Externally, they are generally smart with some creasing to the front wrap of Land at War and Transport Goes to War. All three are a little faded. Internally, the pages are firmly bound within all volumes, however the front wrap of Transport goes to war is slightly loosening from the staples. Pages are bright and clean.
