Hi, thank you for the reply`s, it has been my pleasure.
Its a small Portuguese production newspaper, 8 pages, 6 are dedicated to the fall of France.
Including the 1934 German purchase of the Maginot line map and plans.
Thanks for sharing it

Cool, I don't think I've seen this one before either
Is it fair to say that i'm sensing that there is, or was, a little 'tension' between Portugal and 'le fromage singes mangeurs de rachat'???....
