Third Reich 3D Stereo Photo Book II; DER KAMPF IM WESTEN (Fight in the West)-Contain 100 battle photographs. All of the cards are intact, as is the photo viewer. This book looks as if someone has repaired the die cutout where the glasses are stored with masking tape. We have not attempted to remove this as to not damage the paper beneath the tape. Book contains 77 pages with color photos that depict various Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe units in the field. It was originally published in München in 1940 as the second volume in a two-volume combat book set with the subtitle “Die Soldaten des Führers im Felde” (Soldiers of the Führer in the Field). The first volume was called “Der Polen Feldzug 1939”. The die cut outs in the hard cover book contain the viewer as well as 99 remaining photo cards, measuring 5" x 2-2/7"; these are in good condition, though some are slightly faded. Book cover is a beige color, with silver embossed title. The front has some denting, as though someone has placed something heavy on the book during storage. The cover does have very slight fading, scuffing and some discoloration. Among the 100 three-dimensional views are photos of Waffen-SS, Police, Wehrmacht dog handlers, carrier pigeon troops, assault boat teams, heavy flak batteries, field guns, Panzer troops, anti-tank units, bridge builders and engineers, medical evacuation units, field kitchens, etc. Book pages are clean inside, and overall, in good condition.
