Facts in Review 1940 INDEX
This lot consists of two rare original 1940 examples of Facts in Review, the English language illustrated magazine published in 1939, 1940 and 1941 by the German Library of Information at 17 Battery Place in New York City. The magazines contain the very latest news, historical overviews, and general information about Germans and Germany from the point of view of the Nazi leadership of that country.

The two 8-1/2 x 11 inch issues offered here are 5 August 1940 and 26 August 1940, 16 pages each. They are a bit different from typical issues of Facts in Review as they focus on just two specific subjects - Hitler's appeals for peace in 1939 and 1940 and the British and French rejection of it, and British spies and soldiers in western Europe prior to war.
Facts in Review Volume II No. 32 dated 5 August 1940 contains the full text from Adolf Hitler's famous speech at the Reichstag (Parliament, at the time the Kroll Opera House) in Berlin on 19 July 1940. It is stressed that readers can see for themselves that Hitler desired constructive dialogue and appealed for peace, "before exacting needless bloody sacrifices from the belligerents." The back cover contains a radio guide called "Germany Calling", listing all the programs broadcast in German and English each day from Berlin to North America for the week of 6 - 14 August 1940.
Facts in Review Volume II No. 35 dated 26 August 1940 contains a summary of the Nazi Foreign Office's German White Book number 4 showing the British plans to invade Norway in the spring of 1940. There are also excerpts from Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop's address to the Diplomatic Corps and Domestic German and Foreign Press in Berlin on 27 April 1940 as well as copies of documents from the British Admiralty to the British Consul in Narvik, from the British Consul in Narvik to the British Legation in Oslo, from the British Consul in Bergen to the British Consul in Narvik, from the British Naval Attaché in Stockholm to the British Consul in Narvik, even minutes of the Norwegian cabinet meeting held on 2 March 1940! Very historic material!
These two index volumes are essential for anyone interested in the contents of Facts in Review for the year 1940. They are two 16-page publications (total of 32 pages), one with the Index for Facts in Review numbers. 1 to 26 and the other with the Index for Facts in Review numbers 27 to 50. They are indexed by alphabetical name, and also by issue / article names. Very good used condition.
Individual issues of Facts in Review are very hard to find of course, as no one in America wanted to be seen reading one after Germany declared war on the United States in December 1941.

These two 75+ year old issues of Facts in Review make it possible to read about important World War II events in superb English.
