The Special Trains of Hitler, Goring et al : (Their History and Collectibles)

Description

3rd Reich Special Trains is an in-depth exploration of this World War II area that was unique to the German War effort. In addition to descriptive details as to the efficacy of the early period mobile war headquarters concept, there is a secondary exposition focused on the tableware used by the specific personalities that directed the Nazi war effort from their specific Deutsche Reichsbahn (German Empire Railroad) trains and wagons. In a departure from previous books, not only is the metal flatware covered but also the porcelain, glassware and linen. The questions as to how the Special Trains were organized, how they actually operated, their effectiveness and even their ultimate ends are all covered in the book. First hand descriptions are all included with proper attribution. Also included at the end of the Special Trains are several dozen new collectibles with explanatory text in a continuation of my earlier The Encyclopedia of Third Reich Tableware. All this with over 240 pages and over 200 graphics. Remember, the pieces shown in this book were typically brought back by our WWII U.S. fighting men as souvenirs and as such should have a special place in our hearts.
