Background: The Nazi produced numerous propaganda leaflets aimed at Allied troops. The following small collection comes from shortly after D-Day in 1944. The small images are thumbnails. Clicking on them will bring you to a larger version.
For more on leaflets, see Paper War: Nazi Propaganda In One Battle, On A Single Day Cassino, Italy, May 11, 1944 (Mark Batty Publisher, 2005).
The source: I thank Eric Best for providing me with scans of the originals.
