This historic collection of four complete stories is from the very first issues of Fleetway's War Picture Library, Air Ace Picture Library, Battle Picture Library and War at Sea Picture Library

In 1958 a new comic pocket library hit the news stands published by Fleetway. Following the success of Cowboy, Thriller and Detective comics Fleetway launched the first in a hugely successful series of war comics.

The first was War Picture Library, followed by Air Ace Picture Library, Battle Picture Library and War At Sea Picture Library. These four series ran for over 4000 issues over 26 years. This collection reprints for the first time ever the very rare first issues of all 4 libraries.
