    Default Kamaraden book

    This is a book about the Reichskriegerbund. I could not find an explanation anywhere of what that was. It is about 80 pages, some text, mostly photos. Can someone give me an idea of what it was for? Aside from propaganda, of course.

    It translates:

    "Comrades a picture book by the Nationalsozialistischer Reichskriegerbund"

    The Nationalsozialistischer Reichskriegerbund (NS-RKB) was the German soldiers welfare organization. Probably used as a book to show marches and parades.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks so much. Makes sense now, early on in the book there are photos of archeology finds and what appear to be aging veterans (Franco Prussian maybe) then handsome soldiers and even some sort of rest camp where they can play. Most of the book is then current army shots. Date is 1940.
