Wehrmachtspropaganda im Oberkommando

Wehrmachtspropaganda was a German military branch of the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS during the Second World War. The term Wehrmacht was a conglomerate name that consisted of the Heer (army), the Kriegsmarine (navy) and the Luftwaffe (air force). The Wehrmachtspropaganda branch was subordinate to the Wehrmacht High Command (Oberkommando) and its function was to develop and disseminate propaganda to the German people, Germany's troops and to any German military-occupied population in the world.
