"A soldier of the Reich" by Reginald Mount, Probably 1943

Catalogue ref: INF 3/1321Links to the Catalogue


In the same series as INF 3/ 1324, a grotesque image depicting Hitler standing upon a pile of maps (note that one looks like Britain) and holding a pile of plans, claiming that ‘You can rely on my judgement – remember I was once a soldier of the Reich'. In the background, mounds of dead Nazi soldiers, killed at Stalingrad and Tunisia, declare ‘so were we'.
