Yank, the Army Weekly was a weekly magazine published by the United States military during World War II. On the cover was its slogan "By the men ... for the men in service." The magazine was written by enlisted rank soldiers only and was published at facilities around the world for a total of 21 editions in 17 countries. The first issue was published with a cover date of June 17, 1942. Yank was a very popular and widely read magazine which eventually achieved a circulation of over 2.6 million. The core of each issue was written in New York City and then forwarded across the world where the local staff editors fleshed it out with local stories.
The example below was the Continental Edition which had an issue date of March 18, 1945, which only three weeks before Victory in Europe Day, generally known as V-E Day. It had a cover price of three francs and was 24 pages of news, general interest articles, cartoons, and course the popular Pin-up girl photograph. There was a "Mail Call" department section each issue, which corresponded to a "Letters to the Editor" in a civilian magazine, as well as a "What's Your Problem" department where writers could write in with questions which were answered with the "correct" Army regulation or policy given.
Yank was a well written magazine that provided a fair source of local and global news. Each issue was priced from five to ten cents charged in the local currency. The final issue was published in December 1845.
