LUFTWAFFE AIR BASE PHOTO ALBUM

WHICH THE G.I. USED THE SECOND HALF OF TO FILL IN PHOTOS THAT HE TOOK IN SOUTHERN GERMANY, FIGHTING HIS WAY ALL THE WAY UP TO HITLER'S BERGHOF AND EAGLE'S NEST ON THE OBERSALZBERG IN APRIL/MAY 1945!

Offered for sale is this outstanding and unique photo album. This was not just a photo album but some kind of official record of the Luftwaffe air base where it was take nby an American soldier on April 28, 1945 when the Americans captured the base. The second half of the album is filled with pictures the GI took, starting with pictures from the Boot Camp in Texas and then of his combat tour through Germany in 1945 which brought him all the way up to the Obersalzberg near Berchtesgaden. He took pictures of the destroyed SS barracks, the destroyed house of Hermann Goering, Hitler's Berghof and Eagle's Nest as well as photographs of his comrades. The album probably was created by the commander of the Luftwaffe air base to document the base's recent history as well as important events on that base or the people who were stationed there. It is an impressive 13 x 13 x 3 inch(!) album with leather spine and slipcase and the fact that it contains half German Nazi era military photos in the first half and photos of the GI's tour through southern Germany in April/May of 1945 make this an unique historic time capsule.
