Rocket leaflet prepared by the Germans for the British, extolling their newest secret weapon, the V1 rocket. Dropped on Allied troops in Italy in 1944 as they fought up the boot. Shows southern England burning, being stuck by a giant 'V1'. A little wrinkled and chipped; in very good condition for one of these. After all, these did fall out of airplanes onto the battlefield, and generally only survive after being picked up as curiosities by soldiers. Very scarce.

After the V1 POW Post, probably the most well known and poular of the V1-dropped leaflets. This Flugblatter shows stacks of the German dead in Freiburg from the beginning of the war, and a quote overhead "This is an experiment -- let's try it." These are real pictures of German casualties which were blamed on the British, but in actuality appear to have been done by the Germans themselves, accidentally bombing their own city. There is a common forgery of this sheet which reproduces a fold in the original they copied from -- as a copy the forgery also is printed much more coarsely (artifacts from the copying), and also has a largish black dot in the lower right hand of the picture on the reverse. This leaflet is, of course, the original. Slightly worn, light fold at top, absolutely excellent condition for one of these.

V1 POW Post are among the rarest known rocket leaflet series; prepared by the Germans for the Allies. Only a handful known to exist. There is a great article on these V1 leaflets on the Psywarrior website. These reproduce actual letters from British POWs. The idea was that the families of the POWs would respond to these letters, giving the Germans an idea of when/where the bombs were hitting, so as to provide feedback on their accuracy. The British authorities realized this and attempted to gather and destroy them all, which is another reason for their scarcity. It wasn't known at the time whether the letters were real or not, but after enough of the original letters turned up they proved that indeed the Germans were copying real POW letters. At least one POW's family (by published report) first learned that their son survived by way of one of these V1 rocket leaflets. This piece came from a world-class V1 collection which actually had one of the original POW letters in it by way of em...
