About this Item

This impressive collection of 182 death notices documents the lives and military records of some of the 4.3 million military dead and missing the Wehrmacht lost throughout Nazi-occupied Europe between 1939 and 1945. Most of the death notices indicate that the soldier died as a hero, for the "Führer, Volk und Vaterland" (for the Führer, for the people, and for the fatherland).
