Welcome to the Third-Reich-Posters website where you will find an unrivalled selection of hard to find items.

The name is historical and goes back to when we solely sold posters relating to the Third Reich Era.

We have since developed way beyond this due to the expectations, needs and requests from our varied and worldwide customer base. The price of original period pieces is prohibitively expensive and the requirements for careful storage of them often mean they are unable to be displayed and that is where we are able to help with faithful reproductions or period pieces.

Our customer base includes, museums, military establishments, veterans, T.V prop departments, university libraries and private collectors who are looking for some extra context to add to their collection.

Our wide range of translated books gives the reader an insight into how and why the Third Reich was established and why things happened as they did.

Why do we sell Third Reich related items ? Well one major factor is that their is less competition. As sites such as Amazon and E Bay have banned such items from sale it has not lessened the demand for them and indeed it can be said by banning them they have made them more desirable and have created a larger cross section of interest in this specialist niche in the marketplace. The inability to purchase on these platforms has meant that people and institutions now come to us for these items. None of these items are intended, and nor do, they incite any form  of "hate" , "intolerance" or "violence". They are meant for academic and historical  study and if abused then that is due to the interpretation of the individual not the contents of the book. If you want to blame books and ban them from sale  then you had better start by banning the Tora, Koran and Bible all of whom have passages which could be said to incite hatred, misogyny, or intolerance in one form or another.

We do offer for sale a selection of Allied posters but as these are readily available elsewhere we do not see much demand for them, but we do still offer them for sale in the interests of diversity of opinion and balance. We did however have to stop selling the Churchill busts as in 5 years we sold 1 compared to over 100 comparable sized busts of Adolf Hitler, we do not stock what people do not wish to purchase.

We advance no political agenda other than freedom of thought and expression. If you dislike what we sell then feel free to take your business and political ideology, whether Red or Brown, elsewhere.

The history of, and leading up to, WW2 is forever and can not be denied. It is not yours, or ours, to erase, rewrite, tear down or deny !

The society we have today is the child of the past and it is what it is so act accordingly.

Pictorial History of the Flying Tigers


1 in stock


From its opening pages that list the names of the American Volunteer Group Personnel who lost their lives to the fine selection of color photographs that center the book this photo compilation illustrates this unique group of Americans as no other has.

It opens with a good capsule history of China starting with it’s first unhappy encounters with the west to the unbelievable horrors inflicted on the Chinese civilian population by the Japanese bombing of it’s cities. Many of the AVG saw the results of these bombings first hand. There are a number of very sad photos of the suffering of the Chinese people. A background is also supplied on the AVG’s charismatic leader, Claire Lee Chennault, who was also one of the greatest aviators and air tacticians who ever lived. He personally shot down over forty Japanese planes while flying a Curtiss Hawk 76. It explores the fascinating story of how the AVG came to be in the context of those very turbulent times. It also details the close involvement of Generlissimo Chiang Kai-shek and his wife, the beautiful and well educated former Mai-ling Soong, bettter known as Madame Chiang Kai-shek, with the Fying Tigers or Fei Hu, as the Chinese called them. For more on the convoluted history of China read Stering Seagrave’s “The Soong Dynasty”. Much about the China that the AVG existed in will then become clear.

The book has many wonderful photos of AVG members at the time of their recruitment as mercenaries for the Chinese as well as many photos of their voyages on ships bound for China and Burma.

It also delves into the reasons that many had for going to Asia. For most it seems, it was for the adventure, and an adventure it most certainly was.

Aside from photos of the pilots the book also has many pictures of the ground support personnel, including the medical staff, that were so essential to the successful air operations of the AVG. The author’s father was an armorer for the second pursuit squadron and one of only three such men to be decorated. The time the that the AVG spent at Toungoo in Burma training is well represented here. The conditions in Burma were very bad as the heat and humidity were almost unbearable to westerners. Many members quit early on because of the harsh conditions and the reality that the Japanese were very tough opponents indeed. The ones that remained were determined to succeed.

There is also an interesting section on the amazing and dangerous Burma road, a major engineering feat in itself, and the trevails that the AVG suffered in their retreat from Burma to bases in China.

Separate sections of the book deal with each of the three pursuit squadrons and their incredible air exploits. There are many photographs of the AVG members personal items, uniforms, souvenirs, and personal weapons. One very very poignant photograph shows the telegram sent By Pilot John Donovan to his family telling them a grim farewell as he knew he was going to die on his next mission. He was shot down and killed over Hanoi, Vietnam.

The color section also contains some excellent photos by Claire Booth Luce, a Time correspondent and later a member of Congress. This outstanding book will leave the reader with an great sense of what it must have been like to be there for that amazing year of history.

It also shows very clearly that in the military it dosen’t pay to succeed using unconventional methods. I do believe that the same holds true today.

Absolutely essential for the bookshelf of every Flying Tiger or China Burma India Theater buff.
