Description

This superbly illustrated, 640 page volume presents, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of the uniforms and equipment of the German Army in the First World War. More than 1400 magnificent colour photographs illustrate the full range of clothing and insignia, from lowly private to lofty field marshal. This book includes not only detailed descriptions of all the garments worn in the German Army during the War, but also of the special uniforms and insignia of each branch of service. This fascinating collection of photographs of original pieces is supplemented by 400 contemporary wartime photographs showing clearly how they were actually worn. Together, they illustrate the external changes in the German Army between 1914 and the end of the War. The collection of the Bayerisches Armeemuseum in Ingolstadt was photographed for the first time for this book, along with some important artefacts from the Wehrgeschichtliches Museum in Rastatt. Despite the camouflage function of the field-grey uniform, it still reflected the structure of the German Army in the various contingents and branches of service.

The book is written in English entirely and is illustrated with more than 1800 photos. What a MAGNIFICENT book!!
