RARE EXCELLENT ORIGINAL 1941 THIRD REICH PHOTO BOOK

ABBEVILLE - ERINNERUNGSBUCH DER DIVISION BLÜMM

A REMEMBRANCE BOOK OF THE WAR EFFORTS OF THIS WEHRMACHT DIVISION DURING THE BLITZKRIEG AGAINST POLAND AND DURING THE WAR IN THE WEST

The book was published by order of the General Command VII.A.K. and put togetherby Major Gehring. It was published 1941 by Zentralverlag der NSDAP, Franz Eher Nachf. in München (Munich), Germany. The Central Publishing House of the NSDAP was the official publishing house of the Nazi party. Following a full page picture of the Divisions Commander, Generalleutnant and Knight's Cross Holder Oskar Blümm, the fantastic book gives in-depth information about the situation shortly before World War II started, then of course the Blitzkrieg against Poland in Sept 1939. The major part of this book, however, deals about the war against the British, French and Dutch (who surrendered after 2 days) troops in Luxembourg, Belgium and France in 1940!

The book is in near as-new condition! It also comes with the often missing 27-1/2 x 18 inches fold-out map which shows the way of this famous Wehrmacht division in the Poland campaign in 1939 and during the war in the West starting at their barracks in Remagen, Germany (remember the famous movie about one of the only intact bridges over the Rhine river in 1945?) to LeHavre in France at the Atlantic Ocean!

One of the greatest achievements of Division Blümm was to form a bridgehead near the French town of Abbeville and to break through the enemy lines from there in early June 1940 which had a significant impact on the fast victory in the West! The town Abbeville was also the place where a young private fought in 1917 in World War I. His name : ADOLF HITLER

Definitely a fantastic book with 180 black & white photos, all taken by members of the Division Blümm.
