Originating from an illustrated document published in Berlin in 1933, this book presents the uniforms of the various units, governmental and political organizations. We discover here not only the traditional branches of the armed forces such as the navy or air force, but also those of customs agents, forest rangers and members of the Nazi party.
To facilitate the reader’s understanding, the two opening chapters are dedicated first to the seizure of power by Hitler, and second to the transformation of the Reichswehr in Wehrmacht, which is a result of the events in the first chapter. In the same spirit, the original plates were completed by documents derived from the period, particularly those emanating from the archives of the 2nd French Office, well informed about the rise of the German forces.
The accuracy, the diversity of the representation of uniforms, as well as its aesthetic quality, make this book a valuable document for historians and lovers of uniforms.
