Hi Everyone,

OK, I will change the question if I may.

Are there any books on WW2 German death notices?

Thanks in advance

On, "I Died For You, Too" is available as an e-book for around $16. Do a Google search on the title and it will show up on your search. Couldn't find a hard copy.

Hi Vern,

Thanks for that, unfortunately this is not the book I'm looking for but the search does identify I died for you too in the Biblography.

Here's a picture of the one I'm looking for.

a old member from here [Vinny] was into these BIG time.. He had 3 steamer trunks FULL of them and associated materials - layouts, negatives, some of the original artwork from the cards, receipts , etc

So he decided to do a book. I helped him a bit just on layout,chapters etc. About half way thru he decided to find out about who would be a publisher for him.. Well NO one wanted anything to do with it! He stopped , dead, end , just like that!

It's been years. I'm pretty sure he still has the whole collection. Are you interested in it? He might sell at a very good price... Anyone?
IF so contact me thru my profile and I'll put you in contact with him....,G.
