DER ZWEITE WELTKRIEG IM BILD.
These pictures were published in Germany by the Eilebrecht Tobacco Co. in the mid-1950's telling the story of World War 2 in pictures. They came in 60 series of 6 cards each and were highly sanitised, no doubt having been approved by the Allied authorities before publication. There is hardly a Swastika to be seen nor is there any mention of any of the more unsavoury aspects of the Nazi regime. They were produced cheaply, on poor quality paper, using originals that were probably not that good to begin with so the reproduction quality is not too good, not helped at all by the small format (10cmx7cm). All of that aside, here they are for your delectation with dodgy translations from the German text by me! I have tried to keep my own opinions out of the translations and keep the tone as self-serving and arrogant as in the originals as possible. Where I feel information is inaccurate or might require a little amplification, I have added this in brackets at the end.These pictures are published for pleasure/information/research purposes only and are not for sale or copy under any circumstances. Information in captions has been researched as thoroughly as possible but its accuracy cannot be guaranteed.Read More
