fonts for AHM publication in 30's and 40's

Post by dak4482 » Thu Jun 11, 2015 1:12 pm

Hi all,

Looking for the EXACT fonts that were used in the "Allgemeine Heeresmitteilungen" (AHM) from the 30's and 40's that was put out by OKH. I received the CD from Helion & co that has EVERY issue from 1934-1945. The pages are VERY clear and I am looking to use Omnipage to translate them into English but it is having a hard time reading the pages with just the generic "FRAKTUR" font. It appears the headings and main bodies of text are different fonts and possibly even the sub-headings.

A sample page is attached.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone else has a better Idea for translating since my German comprehension is almost zero feel free to suggest an answer.
