    I do have a J.P. Sauer .32 auto pistol in the original box that was owned by an SS Officer.

    Bravo. This work (Mollo) is not without its flaws, too, but it is a darn sight better than most. I do not know the Ulrich of England books, save for this:
    the authorities there insist that all black SS uniforms are "Allgemeine SS," to include the SS Verfuegungstruppe, which is a fundamental and telling error that does not bespeak an understanding of the SS, especially in said pivotal years of 1932 until 1939 or so, which are my focus.
    Mollo is derided for being old, but the Schiffer books that are a hodge podge of essentially no. American collections are hardly the whole story. They have nice pictures of some items, but hardly comprise the whole.

    Happy collecting and happy cuffs in this odd world of ours.

    In reading two years' worth of RZM circulars in the recent past, as well as the SS orders that Mr. d'Alquen has added, along with Mollo, the truth is that this regalia was always in flux, highly detailed, and also totally confusing to people at the time. Their confusion is the fix point, the center of gravity, for if they could not get it right, then the beginner has a twisted road ahead.

    Sapere aude.

    Thanks. No, an earlier person here asked about the Ulrich book. The Ulrich books are more recent than Mollo. Perhaps I do him a disservice.
    The Mollo books are old, dating from the 1960s and 1970s, which is impossibly long ago for some here, whereas there are more recent works, some of which I do not know. I especially dislike the Angolia book, since it has a high quota of errors. I remain a fan of Mollo, since I learned from him and am grateful for it. He updated the books sort of in the 1990s. It is easy enough to criticize, it is something else to write books, which I actually do, but not about regalia.
    damit, basta.

    and the conditions of knowledge are being transformed, and not always in an understandable way, by the further leveling and democratization of all of this, whereby the editorial process and expertise are a rare commodity.

    Mollo is a way subscribes to the theoretical construct in Clausewitz, that is the trinity of chronology, cause and effect and judgment, whereby he especially makes clear the chronology of the organization which is the basis to understand the regalia. The coffee table books focus on the artifacts, and jumble the chronology and the organization, and thus create a fog.
    damit, basta.

    Out of interest, what books have you written?

    Books mostly without pictures. And lots of foot notes.
