Book Set of Der Zweite Weltkrieg im Bild, Vols. I and II (Item WEHR 19-2)

DESCRIPTION: This set of two books entitled The Second World War in Pictures was published in Offenburg (Baden) by Dr. Franz Burda only 7 years after the tragic end of WWII. The books are very rare today and still remain the most complete pictorial record ever produced on WWII. The books are comprised of hundreds of clear, concise photos. The first volume, Von Nürnberg bis Stalingrad, covers the beginnings of the war up to the European tragedy at Stalingrad. The second volume covers the beginning of the end at Stalingrad to the courtroom for the “Star Chamber” proceedings at Nürnberg. This volume is called Von Stalingrad bis Nürnberg. We could wax poetic about these great books, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, so they say. These books in historical content should be worth “millions,” but are priced very reasonably. They measure 9 x 12 inches. The first volume is composed of 270 pages, while volume 2 has 271 pages. They are in remarkably fine condition throughout. This set does not have the original dust covers. The books are in the German language.

PRICE: $265.00; the set, a great buy

German Unterofficier Album (Item WEHR 19-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is one great album that traces a solder’s military career and experiences with about 165 great pictures in various sizes as is usual in these albums, but what is not usual is that this album has no missing pictures and unlike 95 percent of German wartime albums, there are not dozens of pictures of geographical areas and scenery. Almost every photo is of soldiers, equipment, ships, horses (yes) horses. There are so many equestrian pictures that we think this man was probably in a horse-drawn artillery unit or actual cavalry “great horse pics.” As usual, the soldier begins his album with relatives who were in WWI units (possibly his father among them). The rest of the album is WWII. Many of the photos are 3 x 4 inches, but there are smaller and bigger ones, as well. The pages and pictures are all in super shape. The cover is in leather and is quite frayed at the bound edge, but holding. The picture of this soldier is in the front page and you will see him in many of the pages within with his friends, and Treue Kameraden. The saying under the first picture of him proclaims: “Im Glauben an Deutschland werden wir das Schicksal meistern,” “We believe that it is the fate of Germany to be the Master.”. The album measures 14 x 16 inches and is one of the best archival records we possibly have ever seen or handled. This is a fascinating history in pictures.

Silver Skull for the 17th Infantry Regiment (Item WEHR 19-4)

DESCRIPTION: These skulls in genuine fine silver are highly detailed and marked clearly (‘800). The designation number can be found stamped at the edge of the right cross-bone extensions. The badge was to be worn between the National Service Eagle and the wreath with cockade on the officer’s cap of the 17 the Infantry Regiment. This a traditions badge death’s head. The 17th was an elite group of Sturmtruppen (Storm Troops in WWI) and their legend went on in WWII. The insignia of the 17th as elite front-line, tough combatants was the skull on their flags during the Freikorps period as well. The badge is scarce even in zinc or white metal. It is bout 1 inch tall and 1 inch across the cross bones. This is a very fine and scarce insignia of elite troops of both wars.

PRICE: $195.00

Wound Badge in Silver (Item WEHR 19-7)

DESCRIPTION: Here is the silver Wound Badge in very good condition. Adolf Hitler ordered the reinstitution of the Verwundeten Abzeichen for German volunteers who received combat–related wounds in the Spanish Civil War and then with the outbreak of European hostilities on September 1, 1939, Hitler again reinstituted the Wound Badge effective that same date. The award in black metal was for one or two wounds, silver for three or four wounds, and gold for 5 or more. In this case the one we offer is in silver metal (not genuine silver). It measures 1 3/4 x 1 1/4 inches.

1944 Wound Badge Stickpin (Item WEHR 19-8; AH 16-3; PINS 4-25)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a miniature 1944 Wound Badge in the form of a stickpin. It you read the section called “About Our Rings,” you will see a synopsis of how we bought a fabulous collection of jewelry, insignia, etc., in Stuttgart, Germany a few years ago. This stickpin in multiples was found in the huge grouping. The reason there were so many of these found is that our elderly jeweler made these up soon after the 1944 badge was authorized. BIG MISTAKE. He had thought that the stickpin would be highly thought of and could be proudly worn by people who would seek to honor their leader’s escape from death at the hands of the vile traitors of July 20, 1944. But, after making them and perhaps selling a few to clients, he was visited by the Geheimefeldpolizei, (German Military Secret Police) and cautioned to refrain from producing anymore of these pins for public consumption. At the time, he turned over about 100 of the pins to the officials and we would guess that actual recipients did end up owning one of these. The problem as it was explained to him was that this was almost a sacred item (the actual badge) and regardless of the patriot’s intent, this badge (or any semblance of it) could only be worn by the actual recipients. The actual badge was struck by the C.E. Junker firm in Berlin and only 47 badges were known to have been awarded. The miniature was intended to be sold to Junker, but this intervention by the Army Police curtailed any thoughts of marketing these miniatures at all. So we are told by this jeweler’s son that possibly 200 were made by his father. The dies were destroyed or turned over to the police, but the ones we managed to buy were all that were left. The detail is astounding and the letters on the front of the badge stand right out and could be read in Braille. They are so perfect the ‘800’ for silver content is clearly stamped on the back. We believe the Germans who bought 1/3 of the grouping have a couple struck in genuine gold, but we have only the silver version at this time.

A Truthful CD Interview with Otto Remer: The Real Story of 20 July 1944 “WALKURIE”
(Item AH 16-3a & WEHR 19-8a & WEHR 30-6a & PINS 4-25a)

DESCRIPTION: Well, we all have seen the long expected film, Valkyrie (in German “Walkurie”). This Hollywood extravaganza is as was expected, a flamboyant glorification of a bunch of bumbling traitors who failed in their nefarious plans to assassinate Germany’s leader, Adolf Hitler, and thus hopefully make a separate peace with Germany’s enemies. Those of us that have sat through the talking head Bill O.Riley’s show have seen the nightly segment called Pinheads and Patriots that he spreads before us in his Neo-Con fashion. Well here in this “historic” docudrama we have a classic case of “Pinheads vs. Patriots” and Count Von Stauffenberg played by Tom Cruise was the classic “Pinhead” while the Patriot title goes to Col. Otto Remer. Due to the yellow rag press that exists in several countries including ours, the July 1944 conspirators are officially venerated while outstanding war time combat heroes and selfless patriots such as Col. & Late Brigadier General Otto Remer are dishonored. Otto Ernst Remer (born Aug 18, 1912) died Oct 4, 1997 at the age of 85. He served with distinction in the German army (1930-1945) during the Second World War. He served bravely as a front line officer in France, the Balkans and on the eastern front after promotion to Major and then Colonel in 1944. He was chosen to command the elite Grossdeutschland Guard Regiment in Berlin. It was in this post that the 31 year old officer played a historically pivotal role in putting down the attempt by a small circle of insurgent officers to kill Adolf Hitler and seize control of Germany’s government. It is interesting to note at this point, that if Germany (or the U.S) were ever to find their nations in another major war, it would be suicidal to cite as role models for its soldiers and officers the individuals such as Von Stauffenburg and the other conspirators and individuals who tried to assassinate the nation's leader and overthrow the government in a murderous Putsch. Every nation has a healthy survival instinct and naturally venerates, particularly in the time of war, individuals who make exemplary self sacrifice, and embrace patriotism and heroism -- men of the caliber of General Otto Ernst Remer. Fate had thrust Col. Remer into that fateful role, a challenge that he met and remained steadfast and loyal to his Wehrmacht oath. Count V. Stauffenberg also took that same oath but like the craven coward that he was, he not only broke it, but killed four fellow army officers and wounded scores of others in his failed homicidal mission. Had he been so dedicated to his ideals and murder was his agenda, why did he not simply walk into that command H.Q. and simply shoot the Fuhrer? At that point in time, army officers of his rank were trusted to wear their side arms in the buildings that Hitler was present in. Why?- - There looms only one answer --cowardice. On the other hand, Col. Remer forged forward and was directly responsible for the arrest of most of the conspirators on that fateful day. Now, as Paul Harvey used to say, “Here’s the rest of the story!” We offer a CD recording of an interview with Colonel Remer in 1987 called, ‘My Role in the Putting Down of the 1944 Attempt to Overthrow Hitler."  This is a two part recording wherein Remer gives the full fascinating account of his actions on July 20, 1944.  To us, it is much more interesting and truthful than “Valkyrie” with Tom Cruise.  The movie reviews call Stauffenberg a “good German.”  Well, that is very debatable. When it is put under the magnification of practical geopolitical warfare with this CD, we hope to illustrate the other side of the coin.  We believe we have the “Good German” in Col. Remer.  At the 1987 conference, Remer said he acted in good conscience and if he had it to do over he would do it all the same. I say if I had to write this review over again I would do it all the same! We now present this great talk by this brave man who now belongs to history.

PRICE: The two CD set  for $25.80 plus postage -- Don’t miss it !

Book Mit dem K durch Frankreich, With K through France (Item WEHR 19-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a really great book for those interested in the glory days of the Third Reich. The book is a photographic synopsis of the early WWII exploits of General of Cavalry Ewald von Kleist and others, such as Guderian and Hoeppner and their valiant soldiers as they stormed across France The book consists of 243 pages, 98 percent of which contain 8 x 5 1/2-inch size pictures of all the action, the leaders, the battles, the guns, and the enemy prisoners; some of them quite ludicrous looking compared with the dashing Heerssoldaten of the Wehrmacht.

(Bilderfulge) Mappe, Folio of Art Prints, Presentation (Item WEHR 19-10)

DESCRIPTION: Here is what I perceive to be an absolutely great assemblage of fantastic art prints--21 in all—assembled in a decorative folder made to accommodate them. The prints measure about 8 1/4 x 6 inches and are individually mounted on heavy vellum paper stock. Some are in color, but everyone of them is a masterful and realistic depiction of the war in the east. The name of the folio is Panzergrenadiere and the subjects covered in the drawings are depictions of tanks, armored vehicles, and grenadiers (soldiers) in their battle for Europe. The cover to me is most interesting as it shows a grenadier of the era of Frederick the Great as he advances with bayonet and musket, while directly underneath is the Panzer halftrack rushing to battle carrying the new grenadiers. The folio, or Mappe, is presented to the company chief and captain at Gleiwitz in the War Christmas in 1943, by the Stamm.-Komp. Panzer Grenadier Regt 110. The presentation is accomplished by hand calligraphy. There is some wear to the cover’s edges, but the prints are all in perfect shape. Gleiwitz, the place where this presentation was made, is possibly the place where WWII started. This is where the German radio station was attacked by Polish troops killing the radio operators. The usual liberal anti-German writers say this was staged by SS officers Alfred Naujocks, Heinrich Müller, and Reinhard Heydrich. The announcement to the Poles living in Silesia was to strike against the Germans; and strike they did. There were terrible massacres against the German minority all through Poland. Yes, on all the web sites you will see the information that it was an elaborate Nazi plan to have an excuse to invade Poland, but there is another side, and if you are interested enough possibly you should look into it. Usually, the winners write the history at for the next 100 years after a war.

Book Deutsche Ringen um den Osten, German Struggle for the East (Item WEHR 19-11; POL 1-16)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is one great book that spells out the German agenda of Lebenstraum. There are 163 fine black-and-white pictures and text tracing Germany’s expansionist aims from the time of the Teutonic knights at Marienburg to the Russo-German Pact of 1939. The book was presented as a congratulatory prize from the teachers and classmates to a student they wished to honor. The school is the First Police School Class C of 1942-43 at the protectorate police establishment in Moravia. The signatures are all Czechs, who worked as policemen for the German liberators in the 1940s. The chief policeman and Reich protector of Bohemia and Moravia in former Czechoslovakia was none other than Obergruppenführer-SS Reinhard Tristan Heydrich. He was murdered by British-trained assassins on May 27, 1942. Many Czechs served in the German police formations fighting against the Czech communist resistance movement. The book has 355 pages and measures 9 x 11 1/2 inches and is in very good condition. This is an extremely important historically and considered rare, even in Germany.

Skull Ring (Item WEHR 19-12; WAF 5-12)

DESCRIPTION: This is a ring that may well be a “West Wall ring.” This style, among other motifs, was commonly worn by soldiers of the West Wall (Siegfried Line). The angle of the skull, unlike so many skull-decorated rings of the German services, looks to the left when viewed. This is why we feel that it might be the style for the alt="Wehrmacht". Note in our pictures that the SS skulls of the second type look to the left and are very definitely not looking straight at you. The floral design at the sides is usual on West Wall rings. The ring probably was not exclusive for the SS, but there is a probability that because of its design it may well have been favored by them. This is a good-looking elite-forces ring, in any case.
