  • Soldiers honored on Cards 156 - 162 are present only in spirit. As the colored sky begins to darken at the end of day, the widow on Card 159 has found her lost love's grave. The sun is setting also on Card 160, which pictures a German eagle perched atop a wreathed grave-cross and holding an Iron Cross between its beaks. The inscription reads, "To its heroes from the Fatherland!"
