See World War II From the Eyes of the Enemy
Own Covers from Soldiers of Nazi Germany
The Nazi Germany war machine was one of the greatest threats of the 20th century. Now you can own covers written by German soldiers that give you a glimpse of the war from the other side.
Called Luftfeldpost, or “field air post,” these covers don’t have stamps. But each piece of airmail tells a story about the course of the conflict. Germany used a five-digit system on letters to identify each unit. You can track the war’s progress by the date and location shown on each cover.
Follow from the early success of the blitzkrieg to the last desperate months. German soldiers shared the concerns of all warriors – fear of death and longing for home. Get a look into the lives of the enemy with these feldpost covers.
