By Klaus J. Peters; San Jose Ca; R. James Bender, 1990, 1st Edition. Out of Print.

Wolfgang Willrich, the war artist, was an important instrument in the propaganda service of the Reich. Many of his works, painted during the war, were published in books, magazines and newspapers. It was only after the war that he became internationally popular with collectors through his Military Postcards and contributions to the VDA postcard series. Unfortunately, only a portion of his portraits were rescued by his family after the war. With this in mind, this book can only reflect the Postcards which survived and are available. This in depth study includes The life of Wolfgang Willrich, the Artist, Soldier, and Artist; P14 Postcard Series; Poster Series for the SS; The War years; The Postcard Series of the VDA; Knights Cross Holders; Named Individuals; Postcards; Propaganda; Waffen SS; Luftwaffe; and Kriegsmarine Postcards and Art. Nice unused oversized book which measures 8-1/2 x 11 inches still in shrink wrap. Hundreds of Black and White/Color illustrations. Hardbound, 303 pages with deluxe binding. Once again, a must have reference book for our WWII Postcard Collectors.
