This is a nice example of the rare 8-1/8 x 11 inch, 192 page very heavily illustrated soft cover book VON SERBIEN BIS KRETA (From Serbia to Crete) by “A War Correspondent Company” as printed by Aspioti-Elka AG in Athens, Greece in 1942.
A large 13-1/2 x 20-1/2 inch colorful map of the theater of operations from Rumania to Crete is accompanied by dozens of photographs and illustrations of the hard-fought campaign of the Wehrmacht’s 12th Army through the Balkans (Balkanfeldzug) in 1941.
An excellent text explains the campaign and documents the hundreds of thousands of prisoners of war taken by the Gebirgsjäger (Mountain Troops) and Fallschirmjäger (paratroopers) of the German 12th Army.
The book is dedicated to the 197 officers and 2362 non-coms and men of the outfit who never returned. There is a full-page portrait of Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm List in a white uniform wearing his Knights Cross of the Iron Cross at the front of the book, followed by many Propagandakompanie
photographs of the battle for the Balkans.
A short Epilogue mentions that the book was completed only with great difficulty, owing to inadequate facilities and material, but that it had to be done for the men. It also mentions that the book would not be available in bookstores. Very good condition.
