You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 German Aufklarungs-Abteilung 122 “Greif” (part of the 122nd Infantry Division) Photo Album! Depicting scenes on the Russian Front (circa 1941), it contains NUMEROUS images of the men and machines (including Rittmeister Bernd-Joachim Freiherr von Maltzahn’s captured BA 10 Armoured Car!)
The 122nd Infantry Division was a German division in World War II. It was formed on October 5, 1940. It was involved in Operation Barbarossa; Siege of Leningrad; Demyansk Pocket; Battle of Tali-Ihantala; Battle of Vyborg Bay (1944); Battle of Narva (1944); and the Courland Pocket. It surrendered to the Soviet forces in Kurland at the end of the war.
The emblem/logo consists of a shield featuring a Griffon Talon below the word “Greif”.
Dating around 1941, this album is in EXCELLENT used condition! Containing approx. 182 images, featuring various German Tanks and Vehicles (many depicting the “Grief Division” logo); destroyed Russian Tanks and Aircraft; Soldiers in winter gear; Villages, Air-Dropped Supplies; Destroyed Villages/Buildings; Cavalry Troops; and Award Ceremonies!
