Why is the 1943 book being labelled "propaganda"? The article gives no hint. Is any history published in Germany during the war going to be dismissed as propaganda? Many divisions published histories which would naturally not have benefited from deep study of enemy archives, etc. - this would be natural during wartime, and the Allies did this as well. Also, the Germans (and Allies also) published yearbooks, etc. I'm not sure calling them "propaganda" is all that accurate as they were intended for the soldiers themselves rather than for widespread distribution.220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:38, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
- I think, most books and movies about the war, published during the war, would qualify as propaganda, no matter from which side. As a matter of fact, in my opinion, most war movies made after the war still qualify for it, too. In the case of the book in this article, while I havn't read it, I had a browse through it and it seems propagandistic to me. EA210269 (talk) 01:03, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
