These are my Russian WWII frontline newspapers - newspapers published for each of the different frontlines to keep the soldiers up-to-date on the war (and sufficiently propagandized as well).
The first one is Фронтовая Правда “Frontline Truth” - April-August 1943. Published for soldiers fighting in the trenches on the Volkhov Front. It features things like tales of the exploits/achievements of celebrated soldiers — for instance the headline: “Снайпер Абдыкалыков за один выход истребил 6 фашистов”, which as far as I can tell is a story about a sniper, Abdykalykov, who shot and killed 6 Germans. (help with translations always appreciated.)
Both newspapers feature the slogan/rallying call “Смерть Немецким Оккупантам!” (Death to the fascist invaders!) up at the top.
