Interesting finds, some funny illustrations too. Note how the Swastika's on the officers uniform were blacked out?


But what do the nude women on every other page represent? :D

Edit: Just to confirm, these manuals are allowed to be public right, meaning declassified for public use?

Thanks for the Salute It's Appreciated :D Since I know we have German collectors I Figured it would interest a few, especially there in German.

Spaniard;
Great find! And a hint as to why German tank crews tended to be more proficient than their opposite numbers. I am guessing the naked women and cartoons about partying helped with the memorization process? The comic charactor Bolsheviks are rather funny, even if it's a grim reflection of how NAZI propaganda dehumanized their enemies. Totally aimed at the adolescent mentality and no doubt effective-the cartoon of the panzermen in heaven rereading the manual must have made the point.
