Thanks for posting Mike .These volumes contain some very interesting material. I have added them to the FIBIS Fibiwiki page First World War, section Historical books online. http://wiki.fibis.org/index.php?title=First_World_War#Historical_books_online_2

While preparing the URLs I noticed that Volumes 17-20, mentioned by you above, are the volume numbers for a quarterly series of the same monthly magazines and the contents of Volumes 17-19 are included in the earlier half yearly editions. Volume 20 of the quarterly series seems to be an overview volume, and is not included in the half yearly volumes as far as I can tell.

This is a copy of the contents of the Fibiwiki page (different lay out)

Current History: A Monthly Magazine of the New York Times. Initial volumes also had the title The European War. A similar series issued quarterly (same content) included the title European War for all quarterly volumes up to Volume XX to October 1920. Archive.org

The final volume of the quarterly series of the same monthly magazines, Volume XX of the quarterly series, appears to be an update of the earlier periods and may include content which is not included in the half yearly volumes. The content for the quarterly series up to June 1919 appears to be identical to the half yearly volumes. Volume XX July 1919-October 1920, Cumulative Index of the quarterly series. At least some of the quarterly editions are available on Archive.org

Thanks Maureen. I thought they might be different. Indeed a huge amount of information.Just for anyone who might not know. If you choose the " Full Text " option, for example Full Text Vol 1 Click Then press F3 or Ctrl + F, then the volume can be searched by Keyword, or phrase, then copied and pasted to Word, Notepad, or whatever? What a resource archive.org is?
