Offered for sale on this USMBOOKS webpage is a lot of three original Third Reich books from the training period of a Luftwaffe Flying Officer whose name is handwritten inside two of the three campy publications, Flieger Ewald Fruhwirth.
There are two Abschiedszeitungen or Farewell Newspapers. One is dated August 1940 from the 8. Offiziers-Ergänzungs-Jahrgangen (8th Officers Supplemental Group) in Straubing in Bavaria. This blue hardcover publication measures 8-½ x 12 inch and contains funny stories and illustrations about pilot life, girls, even a three-act play, etc. It has 84 pages with printing on one side of the paper.
The second illustrated Farewell Newspaper is a folio from Luftwaffe Fluggruppe Eppelsheim, between Bad Kreuznach and Worms, northwest of Heidelberg. It is from September 1940, only 50 pieces were ever printed and Flieger Fruhwirth is actually mentioned as a contributor! There are funny stories about pilot experiences, song lyrics, cartoons, and a play!
There is also a 8-¼ x 11-¾ inch, 20-page campy publication printed for the 1941 Weihnacht or Christmas celebrations of 4. Schüko 4. Grosse Kampffliegerschule (Bomber Pilot School) in Thorn (in Reichsgau Danzig-Westpreußen, since 1945 Torun in Poland, about 180 km northwest of Warsaw). It contains funny stories, cartoons and like all German publications of the time there is advertising, however the ads are all fake! Want ads, lost and found and dating ads - all funny but not real.
All three pieces are theather-made (most likely on the base) and absolutely original to the Third Reich period in Germany.
The last page (shown above) has autographs of members of Fluggruppe Eppelsheim. It has 80 pages with printing on one side of the paper.
This lot of 3 wartime Luftwaffe pilot flight school publications is for
sale for $95.00 delivered by Media Mail in the continental USA.
