"I am not crazy enough to want a war" --- Hitler

[Washington, D.C. Office of War Information, ca.1942]. First Edition. Scarce anti-German propaganda pamphlet issued by the U.S. Office of War Information, presumably for distribution among English-speaking Axis soldiers. The contents juxtapose Hitler's public promises of peace against images of Nazi atrocities, documenting with words and images the Reich's continued aggressions throughout Europe. A rather expensively-produced propaganda piece, given the intended use, with covers on heavy, glossy stock and the interior printed throughout in red and black, with each pair of facing pages framed within a bold swastika design. We have seen examples in at least four other languages (the others being Italian, German, Portuguese, and French); all are uncommon, with the English-language version showing 15 holdings noted in OCLC. Slim octavo (25cm); glossy photo-illustrated wrappers, stapled; [32pp]; illus. Mild wear to extremities, faint scuff to front wrapper, else Near Fine.
