The cover of this issue shows German survivors from the cruiser Emden, which had been beached and disabled by the Australian cruiser Sydney in a naval skirmish in the Indian Ocean on November 8, 1914. Sixty-five issues of Kriegszeit were published between August 1914 and March 1916, by which time public enthusiasm for the war had waned; Cassirer then stopped publishing Kriegszeit and replaced it with the politically neutral periodical Der Bildermann (The Picture-Man).
