Thumbs up Bilderbogen vom Kriege - War Cartoons

I thought that some of you guys might be interested in seeing pics of this item. There is no year of publication, but I would think that it is from 1940. It basically just completely consists of cartoons of the war ... and it is quite large, as it measures in at 16 1/4" x 11 3/4". Are there are other parts to this? Is it a series of books? Cheers, Torsten.

Having recently acquired a copy of such book, "Bolderbogen vom Kriege", I found this thread. There is also one on the e-stand here:
http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...ht=Bilderbogen which refers to it as, "...a booklet for kids of the Third Reich....It has a soft cover and measures about 29 x 41 cm. It was most probably printed in late 1942 or early 1943."

It is my assumption from having viewed these two threads, in comparison with my own copy, that there were at least two editions of this book. This is based upon the different sketches shown. My copy contains twelve pages, ten of which have illustrated stories and text. However, there may have been one complete edition only, since pages may be missing from the versions shown.

The copy in my possession bears a personal, handwritten dedication as a Christmas gift in 1941. As well, there is a story page entitled "Compiegne 1940".

More importantly, for me at least, is the story page in my book entitled, "Die Flucht des Oberleutnants v. Werra". This outlines the escape of Oblt. Franz von Werra from a Prisoner of War train in Ontario, Canada early in the winter of 1941, and his crossing into the then neutral United States of America and subsequently back to Germany where he was hailed as a hero and personally decorated by the Fuehrer! The full story can be read here:

A copy listed here provides additional description:
"Book Description: Eine Bilderbogenmappe mit Darstellung besonderer Kriegsereignisse nach Entwürfen von Künstlerhand, erläutert durch einprägsame Verse; Auflage: EA; Druck und Verlag: Gustav Kühn / Neuruppin; [1943]. 1, 12 Blatt; Format: 30x41...."
See: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Sear...iege&x=50&y=13


Hope this adds to the knowledge regarding this wartime publication. Perhaps others can contribute additional details.

Regards,

John

As there are no page numbers, I do not know if mine was complete or not, but I do believe that it was. of course, I did not show all of the pages contained within the Bilderbogen that I had here in this thread. Would still be nice to know for sure if there were more editions of this book. Cheers, Torsten.

The book dealer's description noted above in my posting indicates that their copy - with a noted publication date of 1943 - has 12 pages, as does my copy, so I am assuming mine to be complete.

Hi,

there're many different versions of the Bilderbogen vom Kriege, at all three different covers (without illustration, with Landser head and with a goup of Landsers) and for sure with 12 (only one side printed - this was the version from Torsten), 22 and 24 stories. At the cover is sometimes a number printed or not - I know it without number, No. 10, No. 21 and No. 26.
Also I know 8 and 16 stories but about these I'm really not sure if these are complete ...

However your one is very interested as there's a date of 1941 writen down.
Till know I thought about that they'd been printed from 1940 but official people thought the first printings are from 1942.
Maybe you can write me what stories are included in your version and if there's a number printed at the cover?
If you can post the order of the stories the right order whould be fine as there're sometimes a little bit different ...

Thanks

Andre

Thank you for your interesting and informative input, Andre.

To answer your question - there is no number printed on the cover, or anywhere else for that matter.

The stories in order as they appear in my copy are:

1. Kapitaenleutnant Prien
2. Ueber den Oberrhein
3. Versenkung eines englischen Schlachtschiffes
4. Luftschlacht bei Stavanger
5. Aufbringung eines englischen U-Bootes
6. Fliegerangriff auf Pariser Flughaefen
7. Versenkung eines grossen Transporters
8. Deutscher Spaehtrupp
9. Die Heldentat des Oberleutnants Muenter
10. Deutschland beherrscht die See
11. Stosstruppfuehrer Oberleutnant Bobb
12. Rettung einer Flugzeugbesatzung durch Panzer
13. Die Flucht des Oberleutnants v. Werra
14. Ein deutscher Unteroffizier vernichtet englischen Zerstoerer
15. Deutschland beherrscht die See
16. Kampf um Duenkirchen
17. Der Heldenkampf der Zerstoererflotille Bonte
18. Kapitaenleutnant Prien rettet Flugzeugbesatzung aus Seenot
19. Compiegne 1940
20. Kampf um Rotterdam

Note that stories numbered 10 and 15 above are different, while the title is identical.

Also note that the pages have been clear-taped along the inside central spine of the booklet to hold them in place. However, I do not know if the order in which they were taped for reinforcement is the original ordering of the pages, and therefore the stories. Based upon the order of stories given above, do you know?

The first inside title page (not numbered, but let's say page 1) shows a Landser and the title, plus the printer's name. This is the page where the personal, handwritten dedication appears at the top. The reverse side (say page 2) presents a historical descriptive about the printer entitled, "Zur Geschichte des Neuruppiner Bilderbogens".

The following 22 pages present the coloured stories and the last leaf, pages 23 & 24, are blank.

Hope this is helpful for you.

Regards,

John

Hm, I'd never heared about a 20 stories book.
I own a version with 24 stories in this one the last two sides are also blank.

About the page ordering of the Bilderbogen vom Kriege:
I've two copies with exact the same 22 stories just the order is completly different and one version has a number printed at the cover and the other one not.
So I fear is not so easy to figure out if your order ist exact also if you would get an identical book.

There's a very old flyer (I think 1940/41) reporting about the first two copies of the Bilderbogen from Kriege and there's every Bilderbogen discriebed with a number. The heighst number is 121 or 131 if I remember right. So I think there're a lot pages out there ...
