Default Need some help on some WW2 era German items

Found these at an antique mall and was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of these items. Everything came from one booth that was full of WW2 related items so I am assuming these are from that era or possibly earlier.

Title is "The War in Maps". Trying to figure out when this was produced.



Back





Appears to be a teaching tool.



Paper case it was in.






Back of item above. Pretty graphic depiction of a Japanese soldier being killed.

Wow... as the resident WW2 fanatic, I must say I am really jealous of your find right now!

Can't help you with the German but the dates are nice on some of those items...

Yeah they are pretty interesting. The weekly bulletin pamphlet appears to be something that was issued to officers. Some of the articles inside talk about what to do with the Jews from the concentration camps and the problem of whether or not to allow former Nazis to be involved in politics. The Army Talks pamphlet also has an article about the Jews I believe.

The same person had a TON of other WW2 stuff. They had this shoe box filled with German items and was asking $75 for all of it. I didn't have enough on me at the time, so I had to come back later to get it. It was gone unfortunately. The box had a songbook that was given to German soldiers as well as a couple of personal snapshots of SS soldiers in uniform with what I took to be family members. One was a snapshot of a German soldier and a young woman on a picnic!

One bump just to see if anyone might know anything, then off to oblivion with this thread!

"Europa-Rad" is a reference tool for quare mileage of countries, total shorelines, type of government, etc. It even has a reference number that pertains to the country on the little map. That's a really neat item as it pre-dates 1933.

Nice American stuff too. Those SHAEF dossiers are fairly common but not always in great shape.

Wow, thanks for the info! Had no idea it was that old. That SHAEF dossier you mentioned, is that the Weekly Information Bulletin?


EDIT: Figured it out, Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force. Thanks again!
