Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for those who are interested in the German Imperial Army. It contains historical info on the uniforms and weapons used by the German Soldat of WWI. I was disappointed to find not many colour photos of the equipment and uniforms, however, this book makes up by its large amount of period photos of soliders and its few colour photos it does have which are excellent.

Format: Hardcover
Collectors and Historians have long been fascinated with the seemingly endless variations of insignia, badges, and decorations and medals awarded to the members of both the civil and military personnel of the Germany of the Nazi era. These have been avidly collected since I was a child. But before that the emphasis was on the German Army of the Imperial period from 1870s to 1918.
Though much of that material is now gone due to the ravages of the last eighty some years and the surviving bits are mainly in museums, some occassionally comes out of an attic or dusty cellar trunk when great grandad's property is sold.
This book will be essential to anyone who has a rational plan for collecting this material. It is a distillation of the German Army's Order of Battle,and wartime histories, and contains tables, lists, and detailed descriptions of all the insignia and orders of clothing worn and the individual equipment carried. Other works should be consulted for the details of small arms, ordnance, and aircraft. This book focuses on the individual soldier.
As with all the books in this series I have seen, the use of color plates and the large magazine size format combine to make it a pleasure to peruse and consult again and again. Not a book to be read straight through and forgotten but one to dip into now and again.

Format: Hardcover
It is unfortunate that this book's usefulness as an authoritative source is compromised by numerous (glaring) errors. On the plus side the illustrations are first rate.
It's a pretty book, but if you are looking for serious information, look elsewhere.
