There are numerous scenes with other fellow soldiers at the garrison, and during maneuvres. There are also photographs of various places, monuments, and ceremonies seen by our conscript during his service, such as: the Hermannsdenkmal (in Ostwestfalen-Lippe), a monument commemorating the Cherusci war chief Hermann (Latin: Arminius) and the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in which the Germanic tribes under Arminius recorded a decisive victory in 9 AD over three Roman legions under Varus; the Olympic Bell Tower, and the Olympic Stadium in Berlin; a military parade and ceremony; the Albert Leo Schlageter* Memorial in Billerbeck. There are also 4 photographs showing the scene of an accident involving three vehicles of a military convoy.

The size of the photographs in the album varies from 3 2/8 x 2 3/8" to 3 1/2 x 5 3/8". Minor and sporadic soiling to covers. Title in German. Album in overall good+, interior in very good condition. * Schlageter was a member of the German Freikorps. His activities sabotaging French occupying troops after World War I led to his arrest and eventual execution by French forces. His death created an image of martyrdom around him, which was cultivated by German nationalist groups, in particular the Nazi Party. During the Third Reich, he was widely commemorated as a national hero. Bookseller Inventory # 39292
