Of those involved the many battles of World War Two, none have been more closely studied than the German armed forces. One of their greatest strengths was, undeniably, their commitment to the command structure and loyalty to the divisions and units within that organization, with their achievements and bravery quickly noted and rewarded with medals and awards.
This book explains the development of the badges and insignia of every arm of the Third Reich forces chronologically, with each one described and keyed in to a complete colour chart that illustrates them in perfect detail. Carefully researched period photographs have also been used throughout, to place them in context and show how they were worn as part of the various uniforms.
