Abstract:

"Through leaflets that he collected that day [May 11, 1944] , a British soldier who was serving as a liaison officer in the Indian army recounts the Nazi's skillful but ultimately unsuccessful campaign to win the battle through showering the enemy with paper, as well as bombs... The soldier tells the compelling story of how the Nazis misidentified the Allied troops, firing a total of 14 different leaflets in a succession of four languages: English, Polish, Urdu and Hindi. Very different messages accompanied by different pictures were used to appeal to -- and terrify -- each intended audience, and they are all reproduced here at full size, with complete translations"--P.
