In the rations of the Wehrmacht mandatory item were cigarettes. In Germany during the war years, most cigarette packs contained 6 cigarettes. Some special cigarettes for the Wehrmacht did not exist, and the troops were ordinary cigarettes that you can buy all over the country. The most common in the Wehrmacht were cigarettes "Ekstein №5" and "Juno", but apart from them there were many names, like Oberst.

Cigarettes are made with filters and with a recreated Oberst stamp.

Historical information
To raise the morale of troops participating in battles, as well as to get them additional calories, the Wehrmacht had additional food rations.
According to German officers, such rations were received by the troops 4-5 times a month.

There were 3 main types of packages:
  • "Nur für Frontkämpfer im Infanterieverband" - Only for front-line infantry units
  • "Zusatzverpflegung für Frontkämpfer im Infanterieverband" - Additional rations for front-line infantry units
  • "Für Frontkämpfer im Großkampf" - For front-line soldiers involved in major battles
The contents of the boxes may have varied, but they were mostly about the same:
  1. Chocolate bar
  2. Pack of cookies
  3. Fruit bar
  4. Packing candy
  5. Chocolate caramel
  6. Pack of cigarettes (6 PCs.)
  7. Match Boxes
