    Default WWI Surrender-Leaflet in German...

    I've done some research on WWI Leaflets and have discovered that this particular example was simply designated as "Leaflet #2" by the US-Authorities producing them ...The paper has been glued with a cloth reinforcement on the reverse, called "Doped Paper" to add weight to the leaflet, which allows for improved targeted drops, rather than have them scatter wildly throughout by the wind...

    German Soldiers!
    Turkey and Bulgaria have been beaten in the field.
    Austria is demanding an immediate Peace.
    Ludendorff has submitted his resignation. Why?
    Every minute new Americans are landing in France. You could be killed during these last weeks, or even worse, be crippled for life. Is it worth it?
    You should think about this.

    Cheers, Glenn
