GERMAN FIELD-PRINTED N.S.L.B. FRONT-ZEITUNG (2)
Lot of two volumes of ‘N.S.L.B. FRONT-ZEITUNG’, a field-printed journal and newsletter for soldiers stationed in Lower Austria, District Hollabrunn. The newsletter is a publication of the N.S.L.B., or the National Socialist Teachers’ League (Nationalsozialistische Lehrer-Bund), that existed from 1929 through 1943 and had the goal of making the Nazi worldview a foundation of all education. The volumes were printed in August 1941 and January 1942. They include short stories, poems, jokes, and drawings. They also mention MIA, sick and fallen soldiers as well as awards and promotions. Each volume has an officer’s name inscribed in ink on the front page in the upper right corner. Beautiful cover art depicting German soldiers, legal folio, about 20 pages. Folding marks, slightly worn edges on each cover. Very good.
