Here is another of the photo albums that I have had for ages, then reached the light of day while we were doing some “house cleaning.” This photo album measures 8 ½” x 12.” It has a very plain and simple cover. A total of sixty-eight original photographs and one postcard are included. It is the tale of a German Army soldier during 1939-1940 (at least). The photos show him, his brother, and even his father. The photos of his father are both from WW I (Papa served in Infanterie-Regiment Nr 215. We see him in his pickelhaube and with some of his friends), and from the 1930’s.
The photos show the German Army during its Blitzkrieg glory days, conquering France. Some photos show French light tanks, cannons (at Verdun), and even a captured or shot-down French airplane.
Some of the photos have come loose from the album and are stuck in on one page, which is as I found it. It is an interesting study of the German Army’s men and equipment in 1940. Many of the photos are described.
