Notes

: Blemishes on image. Note 2.) Picture caption: "In den Grenzen und Fronten des winterlichen, weihnachtlichen Reiches hielt die Wehrmacht ernste Wacht. Die Sicherheit und Entschloffenheit dieser ungenannten Wachtposten in ihrem harten Dienst strömte wie eine Kraft durch das ganze deutsch Volk. Im Gefühl dieser Sicherheit und Entschloffenheit ging Grossdeutschland in das neue Jahr." Note 3.) After the fall of Poland, the war seemed to come to a halt as both Axis and Allies considered their options and plans. This time, called the "Sitzkrieg" or "Phoney War", included one of the coldest winters ever seen in Europe. Note 4.) Title translates German picture caption
