Courrier de l'Air was produced by the British and dropped regularly by the RAF over occupied France and occasionally French territory in North Africa from December 1940 to August 1944. Its purpose was to maintain the morale of the French population by reporting the war's progress in the most optimistic light possible. This edition consists of 4 illustrated pages covering news from nearly all theatres of the war. It focuses particularly on the bombing by Britain of the Renault factories near Paris and the rationale for this.
