Fight against the Sowjets
Very scarce picture / photo documentary book about the Eastern Front.
What makes this really hard to find is that it was published specifically for the officers of the 8th Flying
Command (VIII. Fliegerkorps) and not available for purchase by the general public.
It is an excellent pictorial memento with text and hundreds of photo pictures and drawn illustrations; many in
full Agfa color, which was way ahead of its time. All sorts of aircraft are shown with their pilots and crews,
personalities of the Luftwaffe are featured,allies, ceremonies, battle scenes, ground troops,
Stuka bombings, images of the native people and lands etc.
Hardcover (Half Linen /Cloth), ~240 pages
In good exterior and good interior condition.
Spine slanted, mild foxing to boards and endpapers, occasionally finger stained, inner hinges shaken, otherwise ok.
All pages are complete and tight in the binding.
Approx/Measurements: 11-3/4" x 8-1/4" ~2.9 lbs.
