A Luftwaffe Panzer Identification Manual with 3D Glasses

A Luftwaffe Panzer Identification Manual with 3D Glasses; Book is entitled "Panzererkennung aus der Luft" (Panzer Detection from the Air), with the notations "D. (Luft) 1220/1" and "Nur für den Dienstgebrauch I" (Only for Internal Use I) above and "Teil 1: / Feindliche Panzerfahrzeuge / (Stand Juni 1944) / Ausgabe Juli 1944" (Part 1: Enemy Tanks Trucks / (June 1944) / July 1944 Edition) below on the front cover. The inside front cover is marked "Dies ist ein geheimer Gegenstand. Missbrauch ist strafbar." (This is a Secret Object. Abuse is a Criminal Offence.) facing the "Inhalt" (Contents) pages. The book contains pages illustrating twenty-nine vehicles from Great Britain, the Soviet Union and the United States for Luftwaffepilots to identify on their reconnaissance and bombing missions. Sixteen of the most popular vehicles have an additional page of statistics and black and white reproducible reconnaissance photos, along with a page that illustrates front, back and side views of the vehicle above an aerial view of the featured vehicle printed in black, with the red and blue overprints slightly offset to either side. When this three-colour image is viewed with the accompanying 3-D glasses, it brings the depth and detail of the vehicle to life, enabling the pilot to easily identify his target. The full list of twenty-nine vehicles includes: Leichter Pz. Kpfw. MK VII "Tetrarch" (8 Ton - English), Leichter Pz. Ppfw. M5 "Commando" (15 Ton - American), Mittierer Pz. Kpfw.

Trager "Bren" ("Scout Carrier") (4 Tons - English). At the back of the book are eight inserted pages: four additional small inserts with twenty-two simplified schematics in black, along with four additional small inserts with sixteen images printed in black, with the red and blue overprints slightly offset to either side, as per the larger featured vehicles, for 3-D viewing. These "portable" versions were often taken out of the book and placed on the dash of the plane for quick viewing, rather than having to flip through the book itself, saving time and were just as effective. The book measures 235 mm x 305 mm, dual aluminum tab bound, exhibiting edge wear and tape repair, along with soling on the cover, but the interior pages remain unaffected. Accompanying the book are two pairs of 3-D glasses, which have red and blue filters, allowing the holder to view the images in the book in three-dimensions, the images printed in black, with the red and blue overprints slightly offset to either side, the frame of each pair stamped in black ink "Hansa Luftbild / G.m.b.H. / Berlin SW 29 / Flugplatz" with an "S", an asterisk and a uprising bird insignia, measuring 45 mm x 140 mm each, tears in both between the die holes and outer edges, but the filters remain unaffected. Very fine.
