The remarkable war effort of the German armed forces on three fronts
between 1939 and 1945 was recognised by a wider range of insignia than seen in
the Allied armies. While the Wehrmacht displayed fewer unit insignia than the
Allies, a glance at a German soldier's tunic could reveal much more about his
actual combat experience. In this book an experienced researcher explains and
illustrates the Battle and Assault Badges of the Army, Waffen-SS and Luftwaffe
ground troops; the sleeve shields and cuffbands issued to mark service in
particular campaigns; wound badges, commemorative medals, and other types of
insignia. Contents: Battle shields - Narvik, Krim, Kuban, Cholm, Demjansk,
Lappland, Lorient * Campaign cuff titles - Afrika, Kreta, Kurland,
Metz * Campaign medals - Eastern Front 1941 * 1942, Afrika * Battle
