Description

Front: Title centered on the top in black, “Warnung”. On the back the centered title is same text in a box with exclamation points on either side.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:This leaflet was Britain’s first propaganda effort of World War II. It is printed on both sides by “His Majesty’s Stationery Office” and was dropped by aircraft on September 3-4, 1939. In part it warns German citizens that the German government have forced a war on Britain which promises to involve mankind in a greater calamity than World War I. The Fuhrer’s assertions of peaceful intentions have proven as worthless as his claims that: “We have no more territorial claims to make in Europe.”
