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 ‘The Red Army destroyed the legend of the invincibility of the Hitler army’, ’44 Bombardements of the Krupp Factories’, ‘Reconnaissance of the Coast of France by English Troops’. 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.
