A single page recap of the day’s leading war activities was released to the general public on a daily basis. The document measures 11″ x 11 ½.” Borders on three of its sides boast Germany’s national colors: red, black, and white. Each recap page features a war communiqué number and date, along with the day’s important news. This particular communiqué is number 1118, which is dated 17 February 1917. The day’s biggest news was that German U-Boots had sunk a combined 51,800 tons of shipping. It appears that all of the ships sunk were merchant ships. The page’s top sports a kriegsflagge. Its bottom shows a German warship in profile steaming through the water. The document is in excellent condition.
