RANKS & UNIFORMS OF THE GERMAN ARMY, NAVY & AIR FORCE (1940)

£18.00

This book, largely drawn from German official sources, provides the means of identifying members of the three branches of the Nazi forces. It gives a comprehensive view of regimental organisation, of ships’ companies and of air force administration. Illustrating every aspect of clothing, caps, boots, steel helmets and other equipment, there are 450 accurate drawings and more than 50 German soldiers, sailors and airmen are shown in full colour. Badges of rank on shoulder-straps, sleeves and caps are illustrated in great detail, together with those of the technicians and specialists. Regimental, air-squadron and ships’ badges are fully represented. Lists show the equivalent ranks in the British and German forces, and there is an excellent glossary of German military and technical terms.
