WW2 aerial propaganda leaflet ~ German to American and British soldiers in Western Europe; late war; 1945

an original WW2propaganda leaflet ~ nocode~ size15 x 10cm ~ double-sided ~ rocket dissemination ~ "American Soldiers! Buddies!"

This backgroundinformation from Mr.Klaus Kirchner, collector, author and authority on propaganda leaflets:- "The leaflet was rolled and loaded into the rocket together with several others carrying the code SKJ. It must be assumed thisleaflet was produced by the same organisation as other leaflets in the roll. The code "SK" stands for "Skorpion", detachment J, which was part of the SS-Standarte "Kurt Eggers". Rocket distribution and SS-origin are part of the historical value attributed to this small sheet of paper.

"The German Government decided in the middle of 1944, after the Allied landings in France, to reorganise its organisation for propaganda to the enemy. Wehrmachtpropagandaabteilung (WPr) was dissolved and SS-Standarte "Kurt Eggers" took over. Dissemination was by rocket "Pr.Gs.41" (Propagandageschoss 41) and by artillery shell 10,5cm "Weiss-Rot-Geschoss", both being specially designed for this purpose. Because of the Allied air superiority aeroplane dispersion was seldom used. Rocket and artillery range was relatively small so leaflet dissemination took place in the front line only. With the advancement of Allied troops in France, Belgium, Netherlands and then Germany the SS-propagandists retreated and fired their leaflets. This propaganda campaign was started in August 1944 and lasted until the very end of WW2"
