Cross of Iron: The Rise and Fall of the German War Machine, 1918-1945
Cross of Iron: The Rise and Fall of
"In smooth, economical prose, [Mosier] incorporates a number of thought-provoking insights and hypotheses . . . This is a stimulating overview of a war machine." ―Publishers WeeklyWorld War I has inspired a vast mythology of bravery and carnage that has fascinated readers for decades. Now acclaimed military historian John Mosier demystifies the strategic and tactical aspects to explain that, contrary to the standard military history accounts, Germany's military culture provided them with the advantage. Their war machine succeeded against more powerful Allied armies until, in both wars, it was crushed by U.S. intervention. Through simliarly stunning revelations, Mosier forces a reevaluation of the reasons behind the French withdrawal, the Russian contribution, and Hitler as a military thinker. The result of thirty years of research, Cross of Iron is a powerful, riveting, and authoritative recasting of the legends of modern European warfare.

Military Medal The Honour Cross of the World
The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918 (German: Das Ehrenkreuz des Weltkriegs 1914/1918), commonly, but incorrectly, known as the Hindenburg Cross was established by Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, President of the German Republic, by an order dated 13 July 1934, to commemorate the distinguished deeds of the German people during the First World War. This was Germany's first official service medal for soldiers of Imperial Germany who had taken part in the war, and where they had since died it was also awarded to their surviving next-of-kin.

Iron Cross 1813 - 187 - 1914 The
This two-volume work comprising more than 850 pages, which is based on many years of research in German archives, presents the Iron Cross 1813-1870-1914 in a completely new light. In particular the files of the Royal Prussian General Order Commission (GOC) in the State Archives of the former East Germany (DDR), which were basically locked away until, after Germany's reunification, they were finally made accessible at the Prussian State Archive in Berlin, revealed extraordinary documents containing hitherto unknown facts. The author has, with expertise and historical understanding, been able to re-evaluate historical events, to document them clearly and to put them in a pictorial context. The set comprises one volume of text and a comprehensive illustrated companion volume. The 'Typologies' defined in this second volume, extensive colour plates with photographs in a scale of 2:1, provide the reader with all the details of three generations of the Iron Cross along with an unforeseen number of variations - a total of more than 350 items. These Typologies are largely based on collections, not open to the public in the past, at the Deutsches Historisches Museum Berlin, the Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr Dresden, the Bayerisches Armeemuseum Ingolstadt and the Stiftung P...

The Military Medal (MM) was (until 1993) a military decoration awarded to personnel of the British Army and other services, and formerly also to personnel of other Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank, for bravery in battle on land. The George Cross (GC) is second in the order of wear in the United Kingdom honours system, and takes precedence over all other orders, decorations and medals, except the Victoria Cross. The GC is the highest gallantry award for civilians, as well as for members of the armed forces in actions for which purely military honours would not normally be granted. The Military Cross (MC) is the third-level military decoration awarded to officers and (since 1993) other ranks of the British Armed Forces; and formerly also to officers of other Commonwealth countries. The British War Medal is a campaign medal of the British Empire that was awarded to officers and men of British and Imperial forces for service in World War I. Two versions of the medal were produced, most struck in silver and a small number struck in bronze. Total awarded: 6,500,000 silver 110,000 bronze The Victory Medal (also called the Inter-Allied Victory Medal) is a First World War campaign medal of Britain and her then colonies and dominions (e.g. Canada, Australia, New Zealand).
