In his most recent and highly recommendable book called “Propaganda”, German author Steffen Kopetzky describes the work of Sykewar, the Propaganda-department of the US Army during WWII and later during the Vietnam war. Sykewar produced flyers and propaganda material with the aim to hamper the moral of the enemy troops. The hero of the book is participating for his propaganda work in one of the biggest and deadliest battles for the US Army of WWII, the so-called All Saints battle in the Huertgenwald in the German Eifel where more than 15.000 US soldiers lost their lives. What the US Army experienced in this battle was so difficult that it could not be used in any propaganda material.
