WEDEL, Hasso von & Henrich Hansen.
Die Soldaten des Führers im Felde.
First edition. Stereographically illustrated popular account of the invasion of Poland. A superb example retaining the flimsy, rather dull, and consequently rarely encountered jacket.

Quarto. Original pale grey-green cloth over heavily bevelled wooden boards, lettered in brown on spine and front boards, green marbled endpapers. With the manilla dust jacket with lettering as per the cloth. 5 photographically-reproduced portraits and 3 similarly printed situation maps tipped onto thick grey card mounting leaves, 100 “raumbilden” – stereographs – in pockets inside the boards, together with a folding viewer. The thin paper jacket is a little rubbed and has a few minor splits and chips, but no significant loss at all, the volume itself in exceptional condition for these imposing-looking, but in truth fragile objects.
