Many people with an interest in the history of the Third Reich are familiar with the Nazi freeway book Die Strassen Adolf Hitlers, but few have ever even seen the rare Reichsautobahn-Kalender or calendar also called Die Strassen Adolf Hitlers, or "The Roads of Adolf Hitler". Offered on this USMBOOKS web page is a nice original 1942 edition of this Nazi freeway calendar, complete with no pages detached.
This 11-½ x 16 inches (29 x 40 cm) Reichsautobahn-Kalender was published with approval of the Generalisnpektors für das Deutsche Straßenwesen (the General Inspector of the German Road System, Fritz Todt) and contains 53 original illustrations by Franz Siegele and Otto Flechtner. The cover is a 1941 Siegele illustration of a new stretch of freeway in Carinthia.
Every week has its own page and illustration of a scenic stretch of the Reichsautobahn, cars and trucks on the Reichsautobahn, bridges, road signs, modern gas stations, and barracks for construction workers with swastika flags. Compared to earlier editions, this 1942 calendar has more people in the illustrations - road crews and members of the Organisation Todt (OT) during construction, civilian users and even soldiers standing guard . Every illustration has a caption noting the precise location.
This rare original 1942 Nazi calendar Die Strassen Adolf Hitlers is complete and in very nice condition. None of the pages were ever detached, rare for any calendar. Covers for these calendars are almost always gone so the original cover page on this one was laminated to avoid deterioration, and it was still in nice condition when that was done by a previous owner. We have never had another complete example of this calendar with its original cover.
