One of the rare "Shadow over England" series of leaflets distributed over Allied troops as they fought up the boot of Italy in 1944-5. This is leaflet numbered AI-091-8-44; "AI" stands for Propaganda Abschnitts Offizer Italien (see the excellent psywarrior article for more information). Each in the series depicts V1's, aka 'Doodlebugs' and 'Flying Robots', flying towards/over England. The text on the reverse reproduces contemporary reports excerpted from English newspapers to let the front line know what was happening back home during the Blitz. In top condition.
