On the borders and fronts of the wintry, Christmas-season Reich, the Wehrmacht keeps a sturdy watch. The self-assurance and determination of this nameless guard-post doing its hard duty flows in strength through the whole German people. With the same feelings of assurance and resolution, Greater Germany moves into the New Year.

Content : Picture caption: "In den Grenzen und Fronten des winterlichen, weihnachtlichen Reiches hielt die Wehrmacht ernste Wacht. Die Sicherheit und Entschloffenheit dieser ungenannten Wachtposten in ihrem harten Dienst strömte wie eine Kraft durch das ganze deutsch Volk. Im Gefühl dieser Sicherheit und Entschloffenheit ging Grossdeutschland in das neue Jahr."

Content : After the fall of Poland, the war seemed to come to a halt as both Axis and Allies considered their options and plans. This time, called the "Sitzkrieg" or "Phoney War", included one of the coldest winters ever seen in Europe.
