Heinrich Himmler, Hitler, Sepp Dietrich
Illustrierter Beobachter 1940 Folge 16
Der Oberste Befehlhaber unter seinen siegreichen Soldaten
Hitler in his Mercedes-Benz
Nazi Generals
This is a rare and complete special edition of the Illustrierter Beobachter (Illustrated Observer) newspaper printed in April 1940 for the 51st birthday of Germany's 23rd Chancellor, Adolf Hitler. It was Hitler's first birthday after Germany went to war and thus the news in it is military-oriented and of particular interest to students of the Third Reich.

This 11 x 15 inch, 28 page paper is full of photo portraits of Hitler, Generalfeldmarschall Göring, Generaloberst von Brauchitsch, Großadmiral Raeder, Generaloberst Keitel, Generaloberst von Rundstedt, Generaloberst List, Generaloberst von Bock, Kapitänleutnant Prien and Kapitänleutnant Schuhart, and others. It seems like this special edition of Illustrierter Beobachter was published to "introduce" the German people to the important members of the German Armed Forces.
