WWII KNIGHT’S CROSS RECIPIENTS WHW BOOKLETS (12)

Lot of 12 WWII Winterhilfswerk booklets ‘Helden der Wehrmacht’, Tag der Wehrmacht 1942/43. Each booklet provides a brief biography of the Knight’s Cross recipient. Distributed as premiums to contributors to the Winterhilfswerk, a fundraising drive conducted under the auspices of the Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (National Socialist People’s Welfare Organization), to provide winter relief during World War II. Each volume features a black & white portrait of the recipient, with their name printed on a red band below the picture. Very good.
