Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine "Overseas Edition for the Armed Forces"

Total Issues: 19

During World War II, issues of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine were distributed to American forces with either "Special Edition for the Armed Forces Overseas" or "Overseas Edition for the Armed Services" printed on the cover. They were not allowed to include the advertisements from the US editions, so the opening 3 pages were typically replaced with an additional story, and sometimes an additional puzzle was added at the end.
