Faces of war (1)

These pictures were made by my grandfather who was in the Afrikakorps during World War 2. I had never the chance to ask him about his experiences he made, he died when I was a kid. My mother found them in the back of a cabinet while she was cleaning up.

All these pictures are presented to the public for the first time. Please excuse the bad quality but I had to photograph them because my scanner is broken. When I get a new scanner I will scan them. I give my permission to use them on other homepages, for uncommercial purposes only. If you want to use them please send me a note, you can find my email adress on the right side of this page below the links.

Nice. One of these days I will put some pictures of my father. I was a pilot of Allouette III during the Portuguese African Wars. so I can relate.

These are facinating, the truck going to serve the Aunty Ju is british, and I think the tracked tractor is an early Farm implement...Allis Chalmers? My Grandad was Navy and spent his time in the Indian Navy fighting the Japs so didn't have much to do with the German war, which was a good thing as his daughter married one!!! My Dad! (Who's still alive and writting his own story)

You Know the Budesarchive would like copies of these?

Thanks for the positive comments.
I think I will outsource the WW2 pictures of my grandfather to an own blog when they are all scanned.

I agree with 'Maverick collecting', you should let the Bundesarchiv have copies too.
