GERMANY – CIGARETTE CARD ALBUM – DER WELTKRIEG 1914-1918
Cigarette card albums were very popular in Germany both prior to and after WW I. This one is for the World War 1914–1918 (Der Weltkrieg 1914-1918). This aside from being a cigarette card album is a concise history of WW I from the German standpoint. The album is divided into chapters of the war and other areas of interest not constrained to just the chronological time frame.
There are a total of 214 cards. All cards are present. The breadth of the cards is quite surprising. I was interested to see a card of a British tank and then later one of the very rare German tanks.
Each of the chapters have the major events of that year and there are maps tracking the action. .
