Allied propaganda newspaper dropped from planes...



Item # 673415

May 22, 1944

NACHRICHTEN FUR DIE TRUPPE, Europe, May 22, 1944

* Very rare WWII air drop issue

A most fascinating single sheet newspaper, which translates to "News For The Troops", published by the Psychological Warfare Division of the Allied forces and dropped by Allied aircraft over Germany during the closing year of the war. This newspaper/leaflet was created to counter Goebbels' propaganda machine. Notice this dates about two weeks prior to D-Day.
Measures 9 by 13 inches, very nice condition, all in the German language, and an uncommon bit of aerial propaganda.
