MY Collection of Period DAK Publications

Hello,
I have over the years aquired a small collection of DAK books and I would like to share them with you. Most I have picked up for nothing as a kid many years ago (I think the most exspensive one was $3) from estate sales, garage sales, used book stores, and in one case a student gave me one.

I hope you like them.

Regards,
   Jody:)

First up is a 3rd Reich Publication about the exploits of the WWI General Lettow Vorbeck entitled Heia Safari! This was bouth at a yard sale many years ago and what was cool about the book was the period postcard of Marseille that was inside the book being used as a bookmark (I guess).

Last but not least is my period copy of SIGNAL Magazine (this is the German language ediiton). I had my good friend frame it in DAK colors.
