Item No. EH-2338
KRIEGSBERICHTER FRANZ ROTH
By Charles Trang
It is the first book ever devoted to the photographs of outstanding war reporter SS P. K. Roth. Although he died in March 1943, Roth left more than 120 rolls of film that give historians and history lovers a precious account of the war.
This album contains pictures Franz (Seranhicus) Roth (1911-1943) took of the "Leibstandarte", especially in the Balkans at the beginning of 1941, during the "Barbarossa" operation, the Russian campaign in 1941-1942, and in France in 1942, before the transfer to the front near Kharkov. The book is a photo album with bilingual captions.
The album contains more than 600 photographs from contact sheets kept by the U.S. NATIONAL ARCHIVES in WASHINGTON D.C. Some of Roth's reports have been reproduced almost in full, which gives them a cinematic sense of continuity.
Hard cover, 9" x 12", English and French Captions, 160 pages, 600 photos.
