All four books have suffered water damage? The bottom left corners are marked on the covers and the free endpapers, but the rest of the books seem clear. The decoration on the cover is clean and bright, but one vol has some of the lower lettering removed by the water damage.
The pull out maps while very clean and uncreased are both torn across. One page from the Guerilla war is loose, but present.
A very collectable set at a sensible price.
