    Always interesting to see photos from the "Deutscher Volkssturm", thanks!

    It is always interesting to read about their creation and development, as for example
    from the orders 277/44 and 318/44 "Ausführungsbestimmungen über die Bildung
    des deutschen Volkssturmes
    " from September 27, 1944 and October 12, 1944.

    The "Deutscher Volkssturm" was include briefly in volume 1 for the series
    "Headgear of Hitler's Germany", published in 1989 (two pages are included here).
    The book was written by me, edited by Halcomb. Due to time it just became a very
    thin book. A pity. An addendum was planned for many years. Maybe this will never
    come, due to the slow development of the series!!
    From the guy from post 10 more photos were made:

ID:	997705The book bar none on the subject is this, with superb research. Wim's book are always superb, but the Yelton
    book is the best work on the subject in English or German.
    damit, basta.

ID:	997833This uniform found by "a soldier who served with Patton," had this arm band in the pocket. The uniform had above average use.

    I restored the cap, which was trashed on the gutter website.

    The usual end for the VS--if they did not desert, it was surrender:
