Large and attractive Third Reich propaganda poster, 46 1/4" x 33 1/2", featuring a highly stylized image of an eagle in flight before a row of "Reichskriegsflagges", with the slogan "Unsern Fahnen ist der Sieg!" ("Our Flags are the Victory!"). The printed artist's name "Mjolnir", pen-name of artist Hans Schweitzer, appears at upper left, while a publishing line at bottom identifies a Dresden printer and the publisher as the "Reichspropagandaleitung der NSDAP" ("Reich Propaganda Directorate of the NSDAP"). Backed with archival paper, shows original mailing folds and a few small chips to the edges, else very good. Hans Schweitzer was recruited to produce propaganda posters by Josef Goebbels, and was best known for his derogatory depictions of parties opposed to the NSDAP, and for his images of SA and Heer members working side-by-side. He was tried and fined by a denazification court at war's end, but later found work designing posters for the West German federal press, as well as certain far-right publications.
