From Hitler's Wehrmacht of World War II to the Bundeswehr, the German Army uniform has changed greatly over the last seventy years. Through periods of glory, defeat and renaissance, the uniform has evolved. Prussian and Germanic traditions have remained strong throughout the uniform's history, and can still be found in the insignia and equipment of the present-day soldier. A provisional Reichswehr was formed in 1919, and, for the first time, the German Army had a common uniform for all the federal states of the Weimar Republic. With Adolf Hitler's rise to power in 1933, the uniform began to take on the symbols of Nazi Germany, the eagle and swastika being added. Post-war Germany saw a divided nation with two distinct uniforms, and today we again see a common uniform for a united Germany. Uniforms of the German Soldier charts this fascinating evolution. With more than fifty color photographs and more than 400 black-and-white photographs, this book gives the reader an unparalleled visual record. Each photograph is accompanied with a detailed, authoritative caption.

I purchased this book for the photographs in general and those of the Bundesheer in particular. All the photos were
good, many I had not seen before. The Reichswehr, NVA, Bundesheer and the field grey uniforms of the German Navy
(1921-1945) were the areas I found most interesting.

That said what I continue to search for is a comprehensive study of Bundeswehr uniforms from the beginning to the present day. In regard to Wehrmacht uniforms you can locate detailed information from helmet chinstraps to shoelaces. But I have located very little over the years on Bundsewehr uniforms. It is an area of great promise
for someone desiring to shed light on this subject of modern military history, a volume waiting to be written. By contrast, a great deal has appeared on the uniforms of the armed forces of the former DDR, particularly since German reunification

The one criticism of this book is that more text should have been included discussing the development of the various uniforms through the different periods covered. Text could have been included at the beginning of each chapter to illuminate the developments and changes occurring during the period discussed in each particular chapter.

Overall I have found this book interesting and helpful, especially chapter 4 which covered the Bundesheer from 1955 to 2005.

A pretty good resource for German uniforms, however . . . uniforms are highly dependant on color for differentiation between the different branches and eras. It would add to the cost, but this book needs to be jam-packed with color photos : there are way too few. The Appendices have some very interesting re-prints from German uniform manuals, but they are reproduced in half-page size : too small. And in black-and-white; these need to be in color. What's the point, for example, in a half-page black-and-white display of Bundeswehr collar patches? They all look virtually identical in that format! It's for these reasons that I won't be purchasing the first volume. I realize that most pictures covering this subject aren't available in color, but that's no excuse for the lack thereof in the Appendices. It is a tremendous effort, but - in my humble opinion - only A Good Start on the subject.

This book covers the period of 1919 to the present. Both West and East German Military are covered.

Let me first say that I don't own this book. After a close perusal of it at a discount book store, and at a price of $10.00, I still could not bring myself to buy it. I have an extensive library of uniform books for most European countries, including Germany, and I believe this book to be poor value for the money. Many, if not most of the photos have been reproduced before, and the choice of color prints is just terrible, both in subject, and in color reproduction. Detailed uniform plates are reproduced in the book, but in black & white; they should have been printed in color. This volume may suffice for one with casual interest in the subject, but overall ,I found it most disappointing. Also, way too much coverage on the post WWII West & East German militaries.

The purpose of the book is to cover the transition of the uniforms of the German Soldier since 1870 to the present. Each era is balanced according to the length of time that the uniforms were in use.
