This authoritative account of the history of the SS will be invaluable to anyone interested in collecting militaria. Robin Lumsden takes the reader through each of the uniforms worn by the various divisions and explains the significance of all the symbols and accessories from the obscure Totenkopfring der SS to the more familiar flags and banners. By revealing the source of such accoutrements as the Death's Head Ring, the author unveils the roots of Nazi ideology.
The book discusses the symbolism which inspired the SS battle hymn, SS Wir Alle, the Rune, the Hakenkreutz and other symbols closely associated with the Nazis.
First published in 1992 as A Collector's Guide to the History and Regalia of the SS - The Black Corps, this timeless classic has been unavailable for many years. It will be much sought after by collectors and modelers alike.
