A V1 Rocket "Shadow over England" Propaganda Campaign Leaflet 1944

Two-sided, obverse depicts five V1 rockets diving on British factories, with one of the factories exploding and billowing smoke, inscribed "Shadow over England" below, reverse inscribed "V1 Information" inside a rectangular box, with quotes from three publications: 1. "The New York Times" : "The devastations in London and southern England surpass everything hitherto witnessed. The terrific air pressure causes whole blocks of buildings to collapse. The giant "Doodle Bugs" raze everything to the ground within a radius of a thousand feet."; 2. "The London correspondent of "Veeka Journal, Stockholm" : "There is a deep change of public sentiment in England and people are uttering their fears about the other German weapons that have already been announced." and 3. "Daily Herald" : "Flying bombs are reported to have already come down in Scotland. This shows that no part of Britain is any longer safe.", the leaflet coded "AI-090-8-44" in the lower right corner, printed in black ink on a newsprint stock, 215 mm x 277 mm, mint. Footnote: Most of the German V1 propaganda leaflets dropped on Italy are from the "AI" series. This code indicates that the leaflets were used in Italy for Allied Troops during 1944-1945. The meaning of the "AI" is "Propaganda Abschnitts Offizer Italian". Most of the "AI" leaflets were printed in Berlin and shipped to the front, others were printed in Verona, Italy. This leaflet (AI-090-8-44) was fired against Allied troops near San Marino, Italy, as they broke through the "Gothic Line" in August 1944. It was disseminated by a small propaganda rocket.
