Wound Badge reference books
Having only recently started collecting German wound badges, I have already learned a lot but would really like a good book about the badges and the different makers. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? Or if there's a good, detailed section of a larger book?

Only two books spring to mind. The first is "German Wound Badges" by William E Hamelman.
This book dates from the 1990's & in my opinion is bordering on embarrassing, with photocopier
quality black & white pictures & basic, sometimes incorrect information. Out of print now, it can
sometimes be seen with ridiculous asking prices.
The second book is "German Wound Badges in World War II" by Rolf Michaelis 2012. This book
is only 56 pages & is available easily on Ebay. In all honesty mate, you are far better off on the
forums & handling as many examples as you can.
Thanks for your help Brett, it's much appreciated
