War images from 1940
Album created by Stereoscopic Society of New Zealand
Images from the book 'Der Kampf im Westen, The War in the West'
This 80 page book was published in Munich in 1940 as the second volume in a two volume combat book set. These 3-dimensional pictures books came with photographic stereo-viewer cards and a fold-up metal device with which the cards could be viewed.
I've selected and coloured a selection from the set of 100.
'100 cards featuring Waffen-SS, Police, Wehrmacht dog handlers, carrier pigeon troops, assault boat teams, heavy flak batteries, field guns, Panzer troops, anti-tank units, bridge builders and engineers'.
