    Wim's book, which is enclosed above, is as good as anything that exists in English.

    I use it all the time, and am always satisfied when I do so, which is not the case with the ex army officer poseur drivel.

    It is also unethical in my view, for a former US Army officer, to use his rank in order to sell his books.

    The Congress of the United States did not elevate him to this rank for the purposes of writing books for the Nazi regalia market.

    More so when the books are sloppily researched.
    I repeat.....

    Some authors salt their books with made up or post war assembled pieces they own in order to later pass them off at a greater profit. I recall a book on panzer uniforms that came out about 20 years ago that was loaded with such material including many fantasy items. After the book was published, the majority of the junk hit the market, sold quickly and the new owners discovered they had been had.

    You are mentioning a mutual acquaintance who was the new broom in the field when the internet phenomenon exploded. The man was a total crook.
    One does not hear much of him any longer, which is or is not beneficial. I do not dwell on these things, other than the cases of ex US Army officers who
    were also total crooks. These are a bugbear to me for various reasons. US military people more or less invented the collecting of Nazi regalia,
    and the military in the occupation and so forth had its colorful figures and on and on.

    The SS insignia book by the certain personage is also a hobby horse of mine.

    Conversely, there are many spectacular and excellent books of the highest quality and we cite them each day. Among them are those of Wim.
    And someone could take the material on this site and make it into a book, in fact, but such a thing is beyond me.

    Bob is the SA expert, but because of the SA - SS hinge of fate, I do collect books on the SA.
