Badges and Insignia of the Third Reich 1933-1945

By: Brian Leigh Davis (813/35752)
Publisher: Leopard ISBN: 0-7529-0445-0

German badges and insignia used during the period of the Third Reich 1933-1945 were both numerous and multifarious. Their use was extended, not only to their military armed forces, but also to Germany’s para-military formations, to their political organisations and were extensively used by almost all of the administration and ancillary uniformed groups.

This book is about the cloth badges and insignia used by these German uniformed formations. The division of these various badges and insignia into eleven main categories covers the items worn by the personnel of sixty-four different uniformed organisations and formations. The subject coverage ranges from the now familiar German Army, Armed-SS and Air Force shoulder straps and collar patches to the obscure but equally fascinating insignia worn by such organisations as the Technical Stud Service of Prussia, the Female Signals Operators of the Organisation Todt, the Transport Flotilla ‘Speer’ and the Waterways Air Raid Protection Service.
