The police played a vital role in the Third Reich, yet are a fascinating and complex subject that has inexplicably been ignored. This multi-volume series on the subject changes all that. The combined talents of two leading experts in the field have created the ultimate reference. This history of the German police traces back to the mid-15th Century with particular attention given to the Weimar and Third Reich periods. You will now understand the police mind-set, organization and development, and especially the evolution of uniforms and insignia in Nazi Germany. This first volume covers history and organization to the end of World War II, with many black and white contemporary photographs. Sections are devoted to the Police Army (Landespolizei), auxiliary police of the SA, SS, and Stahlhelm, ranks, and Order Police uniforms.
