This figure is based on one of the most famous songs of WWII, ‘Lili Marleen’ and the character it portrays. Originally recorded in Germany in 1939 by the singer Lale Andersen it tells the story of the sweetheart of a German soldier who waits for him every evening under the lamp light outside his barracks. Other interpretations of the ‘sweetheart’ have her waiting under the lamp light for more mercenary reasons and willing to meet any soldier that ventures out of the barracks in the evening! The song however became very popular with the Afrika Korps and, also crossed the battle-field and enjoyed equal popularity with the men of the British 8th Army. Over the years it has been recorded by many but perhaps the most famous ‘other’ versions were by Britain’s Vera Lynn and the legendary Marlene Dietrich. Our pretty little figure can and will happily accompany, either German, British or American soldiers!

HISTORICAL QUOTE: "In war there is no second prize for the runner-up." General Omar N. Bradley HISTORICAL NOTE: As the tides of war in the late thirties and early forties moved into the United Kingdom, the Pacific Islands and finally the heart of Germany, it was the civilian population that suffered the worst. The ravages and the deadly mechanics of war... both in staggering loss of human life and massive destruction of cities had a huge influence on peoples' lives and livelihoods. Occasionally, some relief, for both soldiers and civilians was found in the music of the 1930's and 40's... the sounds of the 'Big Band' and others such as "Lili Marleen". Originally written in 1915 as a poem, the song was published in 1937 and was first recorded by Lale Andersen in 1939 as "Das Mädchen unter der Laterne" ("The Girl under the Lantern").  MINT CONDITION IN ORIGINAL KING & COUNTRY BOX!

Note: As of October 2019 we have now visited Arnhem... "A Bridge to Far" and a part of Germany, often referred to as "The Romantic Road" along the Rhein River. On a previous trip we visited the city of London and many of the museums in England, and on numerous occasions, the Cotentin Peninsula including All Five of the Landing Beaches and the Normandy countryside. In addition we have traveled toBastogne several times including as part of our recent 2019 travel, along with the pastoral farms, and wooded area of the Ardennes, including the Baugnez '44 Museum, the site of the Malmedy Massacre, and the still existing foxholes of the 502nd and 506th P.I.R. We have found the English, French, Belgian and Nederlander people, in London, Normandy, Bastogne and Holland to be very friendly and still grateful to the Allies, especially the American forces, for their liberation… despite the huge loss of life and property damage suffered by the English,  French, Belgian and Holland civilians. In addition, should you plan to visit the area in and around London,  Normandy, Bastogne or the Netherlands we are willing to share our experiences or trip itinerary with you, which may help to make your travel through the areas easier and perhaps make the historical experience more valuable.
