About this Product

This book combines Men-at-Arms 270: ‘Flags of the Third Reich 1: Wehrmacht', Men-at-Arms 274: ‘Flags of the Third Reich 2: Waffen-SS' and Men-at-Arms 278: ‘Flags of the Third Reich 3: Party and Police Units'. Adolf Hitler chose his flag with care. Indeed, he devoted almost 4 pages of his book, Mein Kampf, to the design of his swastika. He wanted a single symbol to embody all that his fledgling movement stood for, and to convey the essence of his Nazi ideology as effectively 'as a large poster'. The design he chose - the swastika - was to become the terror and scourge of the world between 1939 and 1945. On March 16th 1936, he bestowed his new colours on the Wehrmacht. In following years, the Waffen SS and various volunteer contingents were all equipped with flags and insignia, each signifying their individual origins, yet all redolent of Hitler's Nazi ideals.
