this book survived the last 60+ years in its original sturdy protective box

A scarce book in excellent condition. The paper that was available to publish books towards the end of the war in Germany was of lower quality and it rip-ped very easy. But because this copy was stored in its box there is absolutely no damage to any of the pages.

VERY RARE LATE WAR (1944) LUFTWAFFE BOOK

WIR KÄMPFTEN AUF DER KRIM

(We fought on CRIMEA)

THIS COPY WAS GIVEN TO A CHIEF ENGINEER IN THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE LUFTWAFFE COMMAND 2 BY THE REPLACEMENT OF GENERALFELDMARSCHALL FREIHERR VON RICHTHOFEN!

Offered here is one of the finest and hardest to find original Third Reich Luftwaffe books: a near mint copy of the late war 8-1/2 x 11-3/4 inch, 210-pages hardcover book with 240(!) black & white photos (many of them full page photos) plus 22 full color paintings. This book was never for public sale, it was handed out (or sold?) to members of the Luftflotte 4 (Air Fleet), consisting of Stukas, regular bomber planes, fighter planes (one of the pilots was the famous Oberst Erwin Mölders), etc. who, together with Wehrmacht Artillery and Infantry con-quered the well armed and guarded Krim! The Krim (Crimea) is a region and penin-sula of southern Ukraine on the Black Sea and Sea of Azov.

The book has not very much text, it is mainly photos but on the first pages the book gives a historical background of what happened on the Crimea in the last centuries, followed by a photo report about nature and people of the Crimea region. The main subject of course is how the victorious German Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe raced from victory to victory until the whole peninsula was finally in German hands after the surrender of the Russian Red Army in Sewastopol!
