1 Germany
No publisher given Staple bound card covers Very Good 
64pp Semi-official booklet that it was issued to troops prior to entering Germany in the latter stages of the war when our armies have barely entered Germany and Hitler and the Nazi regime have not yet been overthrown. It has nothing to do with military operations and deals only with civilian life in life in Germany, and how to behave with the German civilian population. (Don't be too ready to listen to stories told by attractive women. They may be under orders.)( Marriages between British forces and Germans are, as you know, forbidden.) A fascinating and often (with hindsight) amusing piece of piece of military ephemera. Covers a bit grubby, but otherwise very good 103168

For all in scorn of the wintry weather,
And heedless quite of the howling storm,
My books and I are alone together.
