Soldier's Album in Beautiful Condition (Item WEHR 7-1)
|DESCRIPTION: This is possibly the best-condition soldier's album we have seen out of hundreds. Even the little black, white, and red retaining cord is in mint condition. The size is 16 ½ x 8 inches and a little over an inch thick. This is a completely full album. It documents with 123 photos the career of one soldier of the Reich from his RAD-Labor service through his early Wehrmacht training and camp experiences up to 1939, when he is in action in Poland. Most of the pictures-85 percent-are Wehrmacht connected and only a few are of landscapes, girlfriends, mascot, hiking in the mountain, hunting, etc. All in all this is a very nice Soldaten Dienstbuch.

Rare Wehrmacht Portfolios of Wartime Prints (Item WEHR 7-2)
|DESCRIPTION: This is possibly one of the most important items historically that we have ever offered on this page or, for that matter, no one else has ever offered anything like it that we have ever taken notice of. This would be called a Bilderfolge or picture portfolio. It is incredibly complete with 135 beautiful, (astoundingly) beautiful prints on heavy print paper stock of the early campaigns in France, Holland, and Belgium. The title of this portfolio is "The Way of the Army Group von Küchler" in the West. It is in two separate folders-first volume and second volume. It says 68 prints per folder on count. We noticed that there might be (one print) missing or we counted wrong and perhaps they are all there. The folders are in rather rough shape, but they are at least there. However, the prints are all in 100 percent excellent + condition. General Field Marshal Georg von Küchler, Commander of the Third Army (Armee von Küchler) led his troops to victory after victory in the early warfare on the eastern front and this is the photo-documentary history of this victorious path. The pictures are phenomenal; taken by war photographers during the Third Reich. Here is the record. Here is the glory. An archival treasure chest. Here is a chance for some entrepreneur to publish this in book form. To our knowledge no one has done this with this portfolio set. The pictures seem to be unique. We have never seen any of them published before and we have purchased practically every Third Reich and Wehrmacht book published in the last 35 years or more.
