LUFTWAFFE PROPAGANDA
(from the dust-jacket end-flaps)

This book is a pictorial history of the Luftwaffe that utilizes original German postcards produced between 1933 and 1945.

These postcards were produced to promote the technical achievements and might of the Luftwaffe, not only within the Reich but also to the world at large. There are a number of postcards that have never before appeared in a published form since their original release, and many carry the thoughts and hopes of both young would-be airmen at training schools and experienced pilots in the field. Together these postcards range from the better known aircraft and personalities to nameless air and ground crew and more obscure machines on which information is limited; nonetheless these are also of interest and played their own part in the build-up of the Luftwaffe.


Hard-back book measures roughly ~8-1/2" by ~12" (portrait); ~5/8" thick; 143 wonderfully illustrated pages, no tears or folds; binding fully intact. Book and dust-jacket are in fine to very-fine "UNUSED" condition.


Price is $19.99 U.S.

NAZI REGALIA
(from the dust-jacket end-flaps)

It is nearly 50 years since the demise of the Third Reich, but the regime's militaria - the regalia, uniforms and decorations - still has the power to fascinate. Nazi Regalia not only documents the uniforms and insignia of Germany's fighting troops, but also deals with the trappings of the quasi-military organizations in inter-war Germany.

It was hard to be a mere civilian in Nazi Germany; an individual could be a uniformed supporter of Adolf Hitler from childhood to old age. From the Hitler Youth, through the various civilian organizations like the DAF and Todt, to the civil service and 'old comrade' societies, all had special insignia at the very least, and most had full uniforms, with special headgear and edged weapons. Hitler said of his fighting troops that he had a traditional army, a National Socialist air force, and a Christian navy, and this comment reflects the extent of Nazi influence on the uniforms of each fighting arm.

Decorations were not just confined to the ubiquitous swastika. The design of rank insignia, regional identification badges, and battle awards, was a precise art. Awards were widely available - and highly valued - principally because the leaders of the Reich knew that medals and cloth insignia were invaluable morale-boosters to troops at the front line.

Nazi Regalia catalogues a wide array of Reich decorations, from the menacing swastika flags that fluttered over much of Europe, to the fine details of the uniforms, with their cuff titles and iron crosses, eagles and colorful waffenfarbe. With over 250 color and black and white illustrations - including some specially commissioned photography - and a fascinating text, Nazi Regalia is a vital addition to the shelves of militaria buffs and historians.


Hard-back book measures roughly ~9-3/8" by ~12-1/4" (portrait); ~3/4" thick; 160 pages with over 250 color and black and white illustrations, no tears or folds; binding fully intact. Book and dust-jacket are in good to very-good condition.
