A Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) photograph of a Freikorps tank in Berlin in an assault against the Communists. This is one of a very few RPPCs I've ever seen showing an early Panzerkampfwagen / tank in action. This took place during the violent Strassenkampf or 'street battles' between the left wing Spartakists / Communists and the center-right (Socialists, Imperialists, and Freikorps in an uneasy alliance) as both sides attempted to seize power. After early Communist victories the Socialist-Right Wing coalition (led by Friedrich Ebert) eventually won. Later, though, many of those same Freikorps soldiers turned on the Republic they helped found, yet despised, and joined the SA, where their street muscle was used by a certain Austrian corporal to propel himself into power. In top condition, and USED with contemporaneous Berlin CDS on 10pf Germania stamp.

Original Freikorps Feldpost cover from Pommersches Grenzschutz Bataillon I / Pomeranian Border Protection Battalion I during the period of severe unrest following the Kaiser's abdication in 1918 and the subsequent Communist revolutions / right-wing counter-revolutions. Meanwhile, WWI continued in the East, with German forces trying to carve fiefdoms out of the remnants of the Russian and Austrian Empires at the same time those same people fought to control as much of their land (and Germany) as possible. A bit worn, as per scans. Fantastic contents. "...In the meantime, much here has changed. Our company is the forward-most emplacement, and we are visited every night by the Poles. Nearly every part of our quarter was in flames. A huge barn with 120 chickens was completely burnt. The guys tossed hand-grenades inside and tried to take over the battlefield but the light [of the fire] was so great we could what they were up to."
