Allied propaganda newspaper dropped from planes...

Item # 674798

August 18, 1944

NACHRICHTEN FUR DIE TRUPPE, Europe, Aug. 18, 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.
The headlines translate to: "American Troops Enter Versailles - USA Tanks 15 kilometers From Paris".
Measures 9 by 13 inches, very nice condition, all in the German language, and an uncommon bit of aerial propaganda.
