'With the eyes of the Seventh Photo Group....  Now It Can Be Told!'.  P/b, 25.5 x 25.5cm., approximately 64p, 1945.  'During the war, the Germans could hide nothing from aerial cameras. Their High Command was filled with the dread realization that military and industrial installations were under close scrutiny, and that any changes of significance were almost immediately taped and measured.  In these pages, we shall not attempt to tell you the full story of the Seventh Photo Group, every raid of the Eighth  Air Force would be a chapter.  Here then, is a quick look at the extent of the bomb damage in Germany.  Here is testimony that strategical bombing, served by accurate Reconnaissance, was one of the main reasons why Germany lost!'. Each page is printed on photographic paper, probably by the Seventh Photo Group themselves.  The content includes photo reconnaissance images of many famous targets including Nuremberg, Munich, Bremen, Frankfurt, chemical plants, synthetic oil plants, railway sidings etc.  The pages are creased/worn around the edges but overall condition is pretty good.  A limited-edition reprint of 500 copies was published by the 7th Photo Group Association in 1984 (see previous item), but this is a very rare original from 1945.  Stock code P24215A-180.
