WWII SOVIET PROPAGANDA CALLING FOR SURRENDER OF GERMAN TROOPS (3)

Rare grouping of three Soviet propaganda leaflets which were dropped over German lines calling for the surrender of German troops in 1942. The flyers are titled ‘Auslands Nachrichten’ (foreign news) and dated March and June 1942, in German, each 2 pages, approximately 6 x 9 inches, and contain demoralizing news from Germany and updates about the development of the war, with headlines such as ‘1000 English Bombers above Bremen’, ‘The USA enter the European Theater of War – Eisenhower arrived in England’, ‘The Hungarian People Refuse to Fight Russia’. The bottom of each flyer serves as a safe conduct pass to surrender to the Russians, guaranteeing life, good treatment, and the return home after the war. Very good.
