Ausgabe Dezember 1940 mit dem wertvollsten neuen Soldatenliedern. Historians of music have noted that "Nazi" music represented an attempt to identify authentically German music to create a national cultural history (see Potter, Pamela M., "What is "Nazi Music"? The Music Quarterly, vol. 88, No. 3 (Autumn 2005), pp. 428-455). This work is discussed in Jung, Michael. Liederbücher im Nationalsozialismus: Dokumente. Vol. 2. Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-Universität zu Frankfurt am Main, 1989. This is a part of Western Michigan University's World War II Propaganda digitized collections.
