A detailed large format book... 11 Oct 2010
By C. B. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This work has many color photographs and color plates of the uniforms and insignia of the National Socialist German Workers' Party ("Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei") or NSDAP. It first covers the lay-out of the organization rank structure from 1932 through 1945. It has original color plates from Nazi German publications showing the different caps, ranks and collar patches. Chapter Two discusses "The Ortsgruppe" which was the local level of the Nazi Party. Fine examples of uniforms are shown by both original and uniform display photos. This pattern is continued thereafter. The book is good for the military hobbyist and student of World War II.

Other chapters cover:

Ch. 3: The Kreis - District level, similar to a county.
Ch. 4: The Gau - similar to the state level. The head was the "Gauleiter".
Ch. 5: The Reich - national level. In change of national level departments. The men were known as "Reichsleiters". Again nice photos of the men, their tunics, shoulder boards, etc.
Ch. 6: NS Schools and Party Court. This was the party school system and court system (to rule on party cases and disputes).
Ch. 7: Headgear.
Ch. 8: Pennants and Flags. Including vehicle pennants or "Hoheitstrager".
Ch. 9: Armbands.
Ch. 10: Collar Tabs.
Ch. 11: Medals and Regalia.
Ch. 12: Period Publications and Documents.

Footnote: This book does rely heavily on another book listed in its bibliography: "Cloth Insignia of the NSDAP & SA" by John R. Angolia, R. James Bender Publishing Co. (1985). I own that book as well and have reviewed it (rating it at 5 stars). It has been out of print for a number of years.

excellent reference resource 5 July 2007
By Jewel Shepard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The photos are large and clear. The details are profuse. I used this as reference for a political illustration where pinpoint accuracy was paramount. This book filled the bill. I realize the applications for such a text are limited. However when you need the information you need it. I would recommend this book unequivocally to anyone who needs this specific information. It is informative and very well formatted.

very good 6 April 2009
By Jeff S. Grainger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Another winner from schiffer publishing company. They always seem to put out the best reference books in the third reich area. While i'm not a collector of uniforms, I do enjoy studying the photographs and info in this book. This reference covers a great portion of the nsdap uniforms and has excellent photos to show in the field and being displayed in private collections. Although i have more of an interest in the german armed forces rather than the beureaucrats, I still find this interesting, and this would go well with any other reference material for uniforms and regalia.

Fantastic Reference Book 9 Jan 2008
By Richard Costello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Jeff's done an exemplary job with this work. A fantastic hard cover, coffee table style book. Very in-depth, wonderfull photos. As a collector of this militaria for many years, this work is a huge help. There's simply nothing better to aid in identifying & understanding the nuances of the rank system or providing the detail that Jeff has supplied here. This is one of those 'must have' reference works for any serious collector of German militaria. Well Done!!!
