The titles of the newspaper in this collection all contain the words 戰報 "war dispatches" showing the determination and fighting spirit from members of the revolution committees. Three pieces of newspaper in the collection are the issue no. 3, 4 and 14 of 职教戰報 "War Dispatches of Staff Education". Issue no. 4 features a joint struggle session organised by seven Shanghai Red Guards' organisations on 29 March 1967. This struggle session was held with the aim of revealing the rotten capitalist revisionism in the education system.

The other four "war dispatches" were published by different educational institutions in Shanghai and Beijing. One editorial attacks the rebellious nature of the intellectuals and targets the late Communist leader 瞿秋白 [Qu Qiubai] (1899 - 1935) as the enemy of revolution. Another featured article claims that in one of the leaders' meetings Deng Xiaoping tried to conceal 罗瑞卿 [Luo Ruiqing]'s anti-revolution crimes. Luo Ruiqing was awarded the Grand General of People's Liberation Army in 1955.
