Abstract:

"The magazine Signal was a major weapon in the propaganda war carried on by Nazi Germany in occupied Europe between 1940 and 1944. Published in several languages, it set out to prove to its readers that culturally, racially, and economically, Germany was the natural master of Europe ... one cannot fail to be staggered by the artistic skill and technical mastery of these unknown photographers who managed to convey so brilliantly the 'glamour' of warfare as waged by the Third Reich. In many cases the editors have reprinted the original captions to convey to the reader the spirit in which Germany went to war. When the original caption seems at odds with better authenticated versions of the history of the war this has been pointed out, and the progress of each campaign is briefly outlined in order to set the photographs in their historical perspective."--Front jacket flap.
