VERY RARE BIG 1942 THIRD REICH PHOTO BOOK ON THE HEROIC BATTLE OF THE FALLSCHIRMJÄGER ON THE MEDITERRANEAN ISLAND OF CRETE
KRETA – SIEG DER KÜHNSTEN
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST ORIGINAL THIRD REICH BOOK ON THE NAZI PARATROOPER! ABOUT 200 PHOTOS!
This sought after 9 x 12-1/4 inch hardcover book has about 250 pages with about 200 photographs shot by German war correspondents. It was published in 1942 by LW General Student, right after the German victory over the British forces on the island Crete, an island between Europe and North Africa. Many of the photos are huge full page photos and some are even double page photos! The book was intended to honor the brave men who jumped out of the air right into the British defense lines and cleared the way for the regular Wehrmacht troops and mountain troops! Many of the German Fallschirmjäger lost their lives, most of them are buried on the German war cemetery of Maleme, the little town on Crete where the German paratrooper attacked first in 1941.
The book is in nice condition and comes with its original but damaged dust jacket. It definitely is one of the best original Third Reich reference guides for anyone interested in Third Reich paratrooper history and will be an asset for anyone’s collection.
