Generalkommando XXVII.Armeekorps plate
Just wanted to share this one with you. What's the rough translation on the top, can anyone help me understand the phrase?
"höchstes glück des soldaten ist die tat"
Maybe a better translation is:
The Soldiers greatest happiness is his Action
on the reverse the top writing looks German but the second line looks like it says "Made in France" in English.
Us and them - and after all we’re only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

Translation reads:"Highest reward for a soldier is the deed"--
"He who hesitates is lost - is not only lost but miles from the next exit"
