Mit dem K durch Frankreich Erinnerungsbilder der Gruppe von Kleist (With Kampfgruppe Kleist through France - Memorial Photo Book ) is a 244 page, 7-1/4 x 10-1/4 inch hard cover book published by Verlag E. S. Mittler & Sohn Berlin in 1941.
Following a foreword by Generaloberst von Kleist, there are well over 200 amazing full-page photographs of the Nazi Wehrmacht conquest of France ending with the occupation of Paris. There are photos of a great deal of equipment from both sides, French and black French colonial POWs, British POWs, the damage of battle and even the chain dogs of the Wehrmacht (Nazi Field Police, so-called because of the chains on their gorgets). German soldiers are pictured with captured flags and captured French equipment of every description.
There is a picture of a Fieseler Storch airplane ready to take off, a halftrack pulling a field gun, motorcycle troops on the move, and the General von Kleist (recipient of the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes mit Eichenlaub und Schwertern or the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords), himself in his staff car. There are many photos of inept French colonial troops who were both unable and unwilling to defend the country from the German invasion.
Probably the best photo book on the subject. Nice used condition. For sale on some of the 'big name' Nazi book seller websites for well over $350.00
