THE GERMAN SNIPER BADGE 1944-1945

By Rolf Michaelis

(Subject: Dress, Decorations, Documents & Personal Weapons - General & Collectibles) Hitler created the Sniper Badge on August 20, 1944, to impel soldiers to train and be used as snipers. Thus the strategic importance of single combat was stressed in highly stylized propaganda. Since the soldiers themselves were in sight of the enemy troops, unlike the members of other service arms, they experienced the death of their enemies directly. In this concise history, this badge, as well as the actions of German snipers, is examined and includes colour images of badges, weapons, awards, soldbuchs, and war era photos. (Published: 2012) (Publisher: Schiffer Publications) (ISBN: 9780764340321) (Pagination: 60pp, 60 + colour & b/w illustrations) (Condition: New in illustrated boards) UL-XXXXXX

THE GERMAN TANK DESTRUCTION BADGE IN WORLD WAR II

By Rolf Michaelis

(Subject: Dress, Decorations, Documents & Personal Weapons - General & Collectibles) The close-range engagement of tanks became extremely important, mainly because of the Soviet T-34 and KV-I tanks were for a long time, superior to all German tanks and anti-tank guns. Frequently employed in small groups of three to five tanks to support the infantry, these Russian tanks could often be put out of action with close-range weapons. This book provides a concise account of Tank Destruction Badge, and the close-range combating of tanks. In addition to a description of the special badge and the most commonly used weapons, it includes operational accounts by recipients of the badge.
