German Navy Spanish Civil War UBoot U-30 Submarine Feldpost Cover
Item #:54369
Price :US$469
Very scarce Unterseeboot (U-Boot) / submarine feldpost cover from aboard the U-30 with the 10. Spanien Verband / 1oth Spanish Assembly of the German Navy. Sent via Torpedoboot 'Leopard', since submarines didn't have their own feldpost station. Submarine mail from the Spanish Civil War is extremely scarce; this comes from a very advanced Kriegsmarine collection directly from Germany. While ostensibly on international 'non-intervention' duty to prevent foreign interests from interfering with the war, in actuality, from 1936 until 1938 the German government sent sea, land and air forces (The Condor Legion) to support Franco's Fascist Falangists (Spanish Phalanx of the Assemblies of the National Syndicalist Offensive / Falange Espanola de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista) in the Spanish Civil War / Spanischen Buergerkrieges. The Nazis were apparently excited to be able to try out many of their new weapons an actual war. This combat trial included the carpet bombing of Guernica, which, in addition to killing scores of people, inspired the anti-war masterpiece by Pablo Picasso.
