World War II German Battle Insignia Paperback / softback
Illustrated by Darko Pavlovic
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
One of the unique features of German armed forces uniforms in World War II was the number and range of insignia, both of metal and cloth, which were worn on combat uniforms.
These were officially awarded to mark a man's participation in particular campaigns and battles, his length of front line service, or particular achievements.
This book lists, explains, describes and illustrates in detail the arm shields, cuff titles, medals, and battle badges worn by the German Army, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS ground troops from 1939-45, including a number of rare and controversial insignia.
