In 1936, on the anniversary of the reintroduction of military conscription in Germany, the first of the new unit flags and standards announced for the members of the Wehrmacht was presented to the Luftwaffe, with all of the other existing units receiving their’s by the end of 1939. With numerous contemporary photographs and eight full page colour plates this book examines these new Army Colours, that well-known painter and illustrator Paul Casberg had been commissioned to create.
