    The last picture in post # 2 is by the artist Johnny Shumate. See here for a nice 200+ picture gallery of his work with military (and a few other) motives ranging from the ancient world to the present day:

    The artist certainly has put an extrodinary amount of time in research.
    Very nice work.

    Forgive me for this one not being W-SS, but it's worthy of a place here I think!

    It's one of 16 paintings that were personally owned by Adolph Hitler and that dissapeared at the end of the war. They were recently rediscovered in a convent in the Czech Republic.

    It's called 'Remembrance of Stalingrad' by Franz Eichorst, an artist favoured by Hitler. Here is what was written about it in German Art Magazine 'Kunst dem Volk' prior to it's sale. They considered it a masterpiece.


    “The pale colours, the splendid presentation, and the solemnity of the moment are emphasized in this picture, which has an almost monumental character. Although the painting demonstrates the artistic understanding of the painter and also his mastery of drawing, one forgets it all because of the artist’s splendid work, accepting it as obvious and given. That is probably the best that a painting can do.”

    Regards, Ned.
