German anti-American leaflet propaganda: Mirror-Wise a precarious story.
This is a leaflet that was spread by the Germans among American soldiers fighting against the Germans. These leaflets were dropped with bombs or shot against enemy lines by special designed leaflet mortars with hollow body to house the leaflets. The idea was to undermine american moral by aiming at the lonely and homesick feeling of the soldiers at the front.
The design shows an american girl named Joan, kissing with her lover Bob, in front of a mirror in which her fiancee John is visible, strugging with death at the front. A very powerful propaganda image.
These soft erotic leaflets are extremely rare and expecially in this good condition. Most of the time these have burn marks from the bombs, are wrinkeled, torn, damaged, etcetera. This one is stone mint!!!! Amazing to find and impossible to upgrade! Only a few are know to exist like this!
