Eve of Destruction

I recently found an original German weekly Die Woche ("The Week") in a Swedish high school (!) archive.

This issue was published on March 30, 1940, i.e. a week before the German invasion of Norway. By a mere coincidence (?) the cover story was "Soldiers of the Mountains", an article about German mountain infantry, Gebirgsjäger.
