[No Place]: [No Publisher], [1944].

Single thin sheet; 4.8" x 7" leaflet printed in red and black. Verso numbered S W 3. Text in English. Very Good, folded in fours, tiny tear in top edge at fold. An illustrated WWII psychological warfare pamphlet from the Nazi German government, aimed at American soldiers in a slightly warped attempt at vernacular English. The recto features an illustration of city life in America, a man and a women merrily strolling through a city past one of the ubiquitous "Uncle Sam Wants You" American propaganda posters of the time, with a caption and verso that are meant to appeal to US soldiers' political cynicism and skepticism about American elites' motives. The strolling couple are meant to be some of the "Friendly Folks back home, those who stimulated the big war boom[,] eager to collect the prosperous profits." The reader is informed, "Your job is easy; You just got to die to fill their pockets." The stilted attempts at slang, coupled with the irony of the Nazi government attempting to appeal to Americans' pacifism and anti-elitism, make this an entertaining psywar pamphlet that showcases various difficulties of getting inside one's enemies' heads and amplifying their doubts.
