Uniforms & Insignia of the Grossdeutschland Division : Volume 1 Hardback
These ground-breaking volumes present, for the first time, a comprehensive view of the World War II German Army's most elite formation: "Grossdeutschland".
Exceptional detail of rare uniforms and unique insignia are woven with Grossdeutschland's history and development from an independent motorised regiment in 1939 to a panzergrenadier division within a corps that adopted its name in 1944.
Its two closest sister units, the "Wachbataillon Berlin" and the "Fuhrer Begleit Battalion" are also covered in the same superb level of detail.
Awards, decorations, portraits and personal effects of common soldiers and noted personalities, covering every arm of service within the units, are presented in over 3,000 spectacular colour and black-and-white images.
