Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

This postcard commemorates P.S. Dernov, Hero of the Soviet Union.  This award was the highest award given for feats performed in the service of the USSR.  11,700+ medals given in WWII, I don't know if there is a postcard for each one!

'Posliy Tunisa' is what the cyrrilic says; the first word means "after" (now that I look it up in my dictionary!)  so, yeah, "After Tunisia" not getting kicked back to Tunisia.

The printing quality of this postcard is very poor; a double image of the text caption and poor color quality give away the fact that this is a reproduction from 1985 of a 1941 postcard/poster showing a Russian peasant bowing to the German invader at first but then turning into a partisan and fighting back at the invader.

These 3 items are folded letter stationery printed with Soviet propaganda anti-Nazi images.  The paper and printing quality is low so the text is hard to read.  They are unused--no message or address--except they bear a postmark cancel dated March, 1943.
The top one shows Hitler with a bandage or cast on his right foot stepping on the neck of a prostrate woman bound with rope.  His uniform and left boot are well worn.  There appears to be a face drawn on the toes of the cast.
The second item is printed heavily in black ink and shows Hitler giving a speech probably.
The last one shows Goebels heading a meeting of skeletons and grave markers, implying everyone under him has died, his followers are dead or perhaps the dead do his bidding.

at 1943 - just an idea - the right foot of Hitler in the first cartoon could significate Italy?

on the floor could be France
right foot...Germany itself?

Great images, Fred!  I love to collect Napoleon-related images, too, so the Hitler=Napoleon (and the same will happen to him) images are great!  the art work and colors in the 2nd one are great, too.
