This book did a lot towards pushing me into collecting stuff from the 3rd Reich period, it is getting a bit old and

tattered now, with several loose pages, have had it for quite a while, and is probably one of the very first books

I put on the shelf that deals with TR militaria...

Thanks for posting the books and lets keep them coming. What are the thoughts of "Goering's Grenadiers", by Munoz?

Bob,

Is there any information in Angolia's early book that is not present in his later books on the LW and Heer?

Volume 1 covers mainly the evolution of the Luftwaffe through it's uniforms and insignia. Very detailed on the actual uniform components, basics on waffenfarbe, and basic insignia. I think that Volume 1 can still be had for under two dollars if you really look.

Volume two focuses on the various Officials and Admin organizations and insignia. Also, Hermann Goring Division and Fallshirmjager Corps is covered in the same regard. Volume 2 is very spendy. I felt that I did well finding mine for 300 dollars on Ebay. I have seen private book companies offer it for over 700 dollars. :banger:

Volume 3 covers the LW Field Divisions, Female Auxilaries, Band and Drum Corps, and others. This one can typically be found for well under 200 dollars as well.

In my experience, Ebay is the best place to get these.

Another great new reference. It covers not only the Luftschutz organizations, but has heavy of the Luftwaffe as well. There are chapters devoted to fighter aces, Flak service, and many others. I feel that this book is a must have for any library. This is David Littlejohn's final book.

This one has a few holes, but is by far the most comprehensively illustrated and concise publication out there.  That being said, again, there are some missing things.  

 

It is a definite "must have".

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
