A Collector's Guide to World War 2 German Medals and Political Awards

Front Cover
Ian Allan Publishing, 1994 - Antiques & Collectibles - 160 pages
In his fourth contribution to the highly successful 'Collector's Guides' series, Chris Ailsby examines the wide range of equipment, uniforms, medals and awards specifically associated with the Luftwaffe during World War 2. Alongside the detailed descriptions of the militaria being discussed are photographs and a ratings system designed to allow the user and reader to gauge relative values. Some 60 years after the end of World War 2, interest in Third Reich militaria remains strong and inevitably, in any popular area of collecting there is material of doubtful provenance designed to catch out the unwary. The 'Collector's Guides' series has proved an essential reference source for those interested in the subject and this latest addition to the series will continue to build upon the considerable reputation that the series has built up over the years. Providing the collector with detailed and objective advice, the book will be essential reading for any active collector of Third Reich Militaria as well as those interested in the Luftwaffe during the period from 1933 - 1945.
