In this work, the authors focus primarily on all the unnamed seamen who served on the minelayers, Schnellboote, minehunters, cruisers, U-Boats, and other ships. For this reason, they discovered previously unknown war-era records from private archives. The uniforms and equipment shown are originals from the period, and likewise come from private collections.

1-212900 Gleason, Bruce P SOUND THE TRUMPET, BEAT THE DRUMS - Horse-Mounted Bands of the U.S. Army, 1820-1940 Profiles US Army horse-mounted bands. Traces their origins, including the horn-blowing Celtic and Roman cavalries of antiquity and the mounted Middle Eastern musicians whom European Crusaders encountered in the Holy Land. He describes the performance, musical selections, composition, and duties of American mounted bands that have served regular, militia, volunteer, and National Guard regiments in military and civil parades and concerts, in ceremonies, and on the battlefield.

Over time, the composition of the bands has changed-beginning with trumpets and drums and expanding to full-fledged concert bands on horseback. Woven throughout the book are often-surprising strands of American military history from the War of 1812 through the Civil War, action on the western frontier, and the two world wars. 1 vol, 264 pgs 2016 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

1-197110 Tylisz, Dan NORMANDY 44: German Helmets - The Normandy Campaign In the first volume of this new series by Militaria Magazine, collectors will discover a new aspect of helmet camouflage, focusing on the spontaneous gesture of the front-line soldier, the individuality and sometimes moving aspect of 'battlefield found' helmets.

Impressive by their historical dimension, camouflaged helmets, whether the plain result of personal initiative or produced by teams of experienced artists, often reproduce the colors and patterns applied to tanks and guns.

The wide array of more than 150 original German helmets shown here is only a glimpse of their huge variety, but it captures the general trends in WW2 German equipment camouflage. From the crude and elementary mottling with issue or civilian paints to the imaginative and complicated patterns evolved within sedentary units, the veteran soldier also completed his work by adding various texturing elements.

Most of these helmets originate from private collections and were found on the Normandy battlefield. The majority were photographed in natural light, to enhance the actual efficiency of their camouflage finish.

A must-have book for all German militaria and helmet collectors, and camouflage enthusiasts. 1 vol, 84 pgs 2011 FRANCE, Histoire Collections

1-201350 Wernitz, Dr. Frank THE IRON CROSS 1813-1870-1914: The History and Significance of a Medal This two-volume work comprising more than 850 pages includes 1500 color photographs, contemporary BW photographs, and illustrations. Based on many years of research in German archives -- in particular the files of the Royal Prussian General Order Commission (GOC) in the State Archives of the former East Germany (DDR), which were basically locked away until, after Germany's reunification and were finally made accessible at the Prussian State Archive in Berlin -- this work contains hitherto unknown facts.

The set comprises one volume of text and a comprehensive illustrated companion volume. The 'Typologies' defined in this second volume, extensive color plates with photographs in a scale of 2:1, provide the reader with all the details of three generations of the Iron Cross along with an unforeseen number of variations.

These Typologies are largely based on collections not open to the public in the past, at the Deutsches Historisches Museum Berlin, the Militarhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr Dresden, the Bayerisches Armeemuseum Ingolstadt and the Stiftung Preussische Schlosser und Garten Berlin-Brandenburg, who now hold the almost complete former collection of Max Aurich.

In addition, the author has impressively tracked down medals that were long believed to have been lost, such as the 'Blucher Star' and its Grand Cross of the Iron Cross from 1813, which belonged to Graf Gebhard Leberecht von Blucher. For the first time, both decorations are presented here in color. 2 vol, 864 pgs 2013 AUSTRIA, VERLAG MILITARIA
