ULTRA-RARE MINT MARINE USMC BEACH LANDING LEAFLET!
I HAVE A SMALL PILE OF THESE! THE TIDAL WAVE! MARINE K-BAR KILLS IRAQI.
One of the baddest, USMC Bravado leaflets in the war.

As the author of Seeds of Victory, I guarantee the authenticity.

Leaflet Catalogue Number #C20.

This information, like the Catalogue number for this leaflet is taken from the book, SEEDS OF VICTORY, which catalogues and translates and gives notes on all Gulf War leaflets for collectors.

The most collectible leaflet of the Gulf War to many, and damn rare.

The colorized version of the "Tidal Wave" or "The Wave" as it is commonly known. This product is one of the more visually appealing PSYOP products of the war, and it is easily understood why this leaflet was immediately sought after by U.S. Marines, mostly due to its obvious style of bravado in theme selection.

The reverse side of both of these products contained an identically worded, simplified series of surrender instructions for the individual Iraqi combatant to follow.

NOTES: The target audience is the Iraqi military within Kuwait. There is a very explicit sense of fear from sea borne invasion and specifically in death from the U.S. Marines. Leaflet was first requested for printing upon January the 7th, for a January the 11th due date.

That date was the initiation of a sea borne bottle delivery operation where all 12,000 color leaflets were stuffed into individual, empty plastic water bottles and then floated along the occupied Kuwaiti coastline.

This is a highly artistic, and extremely rare leaflet.
