[bumped and scrunched at lower spine, resulting in several bends in the lower section of the publication, light tanning of page edges due to cheap paper]. (halftone photographs, document facsimiles) Communist political tract (published in East Berlin, but with text entirely in French, for some reason) that attacks the then-Governing Mayor of West Berlin Willy Brandt and the then-West German Minister of Defence Franz Josef Strauss, primarily by attempting to establish (with, among other evidence, reproductions of relevant documents) their Nazi connections, specifically with the SS. Neither my French nor my knowledge of postwar German history are adequate to accurately interpret just how unhinged this 64-page screed is, but a couple of section headings (with translations) will give a flavor of the thing: "Les chefs des cinequièmes colonnes d'Hitler sont les chefs des cinquièmes colonnes de Strauss et de Brandt" ("The heads of the fifth columns of Hitler are the heads of the fifth columns of Strauss and Brandt"); "Pacte diabolique entre Strauss et les SS" ("Diabolical pact between Strauss and the SS"). [For whatever it's worth, neither of the Wikipedia entries on Brandt and Strauss indicate any such connections, although it's noted that the latter did serve in the Wehrmacht during World War II.]
