ZG.45 is a reprint of ZG.23, again reprinted as ZG.73K in Paris. This is probably the most successful single PWD combat leaflet of the Western campaign, judging from the returns of prisoners. It is a "battle-type" leaflet, designed for hard defensive fighting (from the German point-of-view). Its lack of any political appeal, and its short-term soldier-to-soldier language may have been responsible for its success. The fact that since Normandy dissemination has never been complete (due to the length of the front), and the continuous appearance of new individual German soldiers at the front, justify its continued use. The surrender instructions on the back of ZG.73K are now the standard instructions for similar leaflets, based on the best available intelligence on surrender, capture and desertion.
