A series of the magazines was printed by and for the members of the Bund des Asiakämpfer, The League of Asian Warriors, the German war veterans, who fought in the Middle East, alongside with the Ottoman Army during WWII.

The monthly included news on the Orient and regional news of different divisions of the League. It also included articles on art and history of the Orient and advertisements. The number 4/1928 included illustrated advertisement for erotic photographs of Japanese women by a Tyrolean photographer Heinz von Perckhammer (1895–1965).

The league was founded in 1918 to investigate the whereabouts of the missing soldiers and nurses of the Red Cross during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign. In the same year the first issues of the magazines were published. In 1933 the League was affiliated to the Nazi Party.
