Unbound. A collection of 110 loose black and white and sepia-toned photographs of Nazi soldiers from 1935 until about 1942. The images range in size from 2¼" x 2¼ to 3¾" x 5¼" with some captions on the versos in German. All pictures are near fine or better with some age toning, curling, and remnants from being affixed in a photo album. The photographs depict members of the Wehrmacht engineering corps beginning in the mid-1930s and continuing through World War II. The scenes include soldiers cleaning weapons, marching through fields and town squares, and one captioned "metal working" that shows soldiers fixing bicycles. The young men are pictured celebrating Christmas in 1937, posing at fancy dinners, dancing with children, and playing cards. Swastikas can be seen throughout, along with a photo of one man's closet with a portrait of Adolf Hitler displayed in the center. The assemblage shows the military career of a Nazi soldier through the war covering training, military functions, battlefields, and socializing. An extensive collection of 1930s and 1940s vernacular German war photography.
