The cover of this rare Third Reich photo book has the insignia of the Division (Ulm Cathedral above the wings of a seagull) above the title. The introduction by Rittmeister Wolfgang Köstlin reveals the purpose of this book: the pictures should be a permanent reminder not only for the men of the Division, but also their families so nobody would ever forget their sacrifices and the important history the Division was a part of.
