Reviews - What do customers think about German Soldiers of World War Two?
A must for collectors of militaria and interesting for the general reader May 3, 2008
German Soldiers of World War Two by Jean de Lagarde is an impressive collection of color photographs illustrating in great detail what the German military man looked like in the 1940s. Pictured are uniforms of all kinds: dress, working, and combat for both winter and summer. Weapons and equipment and insignia and decorations are also shown.
The focus of the work is on the army, but other branches are also covered. This is an impressive volume and a must for collectors of militaria. The work is also quite useful for the general reader although the level of detail is often beyond what the average person will need: Hindenburg bomber pilots wore "black flying boots made of smooth leather for the uppers and suede for the shaft."
Excellent reference Apr 10, 2008
Very good pictures and text of German WW II uniforms. A must for scale modelers.
Fantastic collection of uniforms and equipment Jan 10, 2007
This book is fantastic for the military modeller. It provides full colour photos of German military uniforms and equipment from World War II. It also contains detailed pictures of German awards and decorations.
The book also has a hard cover and therefore should last a while.
Overall German Soldiers of World War Two is highly recommended.
Good WWII Uniform Reference Mar 25, 2006
For anyone needing a good, general, reference to German uniforms - complete with pictures, this one will definitely work. I can see this being extremely useful for reactors; particularly for those doing later war impressions.
All branches of the German military are covered, broken down, roughly, by year. The early war years, 1939 to 1941, aren't given nearly the attention that the later war period receives. As well, the quality of the accompanying text is uneven in places. Where it's good, however, it's very good. While not an exhaustive treatment of the subject, this book nonetheless proves to be an excellent resource. The photography is nothing less than stunning. My biggest complaint there is that there are only 134 pages. I'd like to have seen many, many more...
Will this answer every obscure uniform question that comes along? No. However, I do not think that was the intent anyway. While the large size makes this a good candidate for the coffee table, if you happen to have need of the information contained herein, it's likely that you'll be too busy reading and looking at the pictures to leave it sitting for that long.
problem solution for modeler Mar 14, 2006
if you are a modeler,this book could give you away out for details colour in german soldier uniform. and most of all not only the uniform but also like straps and buckles there are explanation about the color ( not like we thought that it always painted in metal colour).
