Motor Schau was a big, oversized 10 x 13-3/4 inch glossy, heavily illustrated trade and consumer magazine which concentrated on every aspect of the "motor business" not only in Germany, but around the world. Its emphasis was Germany and German equipment and every big issue was packed with features, news and advertising related to the motor trades. Unlike the other German motoring magazines, every issue of Motor Schau had a striking full-color industry related cover and usually plenty of color inside. 
This is a fine, complete example of the superb oversized Third Reich magazine Motor Schau for March 1943 featuring a cover photo by war correspondent or Kriegsberichter Andres of a Kriegsmarine U-Boot, a Nazi submarine and its crew.
