This piece is interesting on several levels.  

First the piece itself was featured in Frederick Adolphus's "Militaria" magazine (Jan-Feb 2010).  The the subject of the article was about converted Waffenrock uniforms and this piece was one of the examples he chose to feature in the magazine article.  This piece comes with the complete magazine issue as well as a nice letter of thanks from Mr. Adolphus thanking me for providing photos to assist with his article.

The 2nd thing that is really interesting about this piece is the unit in which the owner of this piece served.  This piece is well marked and the owner of this piece was in the 71st Infantry Regiment.  This was a motorized infantry regiment that was a component of the 29th motorized infantry division.  It served in all of the famous campaigns from 1939 thru 1943 when it was finally destroyed at Stalingrad.  Being a motorized infantry division it served with all of the panzer/blitzkrieg thrusts in Poland and France.  In Russia it served with Army Group Center at Minsk, Smolensk and finally Guardian's drive on Tula.  It eventually ended up heading south in mid-1942 and was surrounded with the rest of the 6th Army in the Stalingrad pocket where it was destroyed in January of 1943.

Absolutely beautiful rare hat. Besides being a very hard to find "Crusher", the piping is the even harder to find recon branch. It is the beautiful rust/copper brown color. The hat is also in great condition. There are a few very minor areas of wear. A superb centerpiece for a high end collection.

Simply an unbelievable grouping for a soldier that started off in a Heer Flak Bn. When the Flak Bn. was finally disbanded he transferred into a Flak Co. of the 2nd Panzerjager Bn that was part of the 12th Panzer Div. True premium grouping.

General Assault Badge Document for Stabsgefreiten Paul Hiller. His unit was the 18th Panzerjager (Anti-Tank) Bn. in the 18th Panzergrenadier Division. At the time he was awarded his badge his unit was involved in the defense of east Prussia against the Soviets and was armed with Sturmgeschutz III G Assault Guns (essentially a tank mounting a 75mm gun without a turret). He received his award on the last day of 1944.

EK2 hand signed by holder of Knights Cross & German Cross In Gold

Good grouping for a German Soldier, Unteroffizier Helmut Mader of the 2nd & later 6th Komp. 385th Infantry Regiment, 223rd Infantry Division. It contains an EK2, Infanterie Sturmabzeichen & Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz award document.

Unteroffizier Mader's division was generally composed of older men and spent the beginning of the Russian Campaign in the southwest of France at Bordeaux. They were sent to meatgrinder near Leningrad in November 1941. Mader was wounded and received his Iron Cross in April of 1942. He received his Infantry Assault Badge 6 months later in October. Several interesting things about this grouping. The EK2 document is hand signed by Generalmajor Baron Siegmund von Schleinitz (holder of the Knights Cross Of The Iron Cross and the German Cross In Gold) using the stamp of the 96th Infantry Division which he later commanded. Both of the other documents are hand signed by the Regimental Commander of the 385th. Apparently the 385th was at this point attached or at least under the control of the 96th Division. Both divisions were in the same Army Corps so not an uncommon occurance in the heat of battle. Another interesting thing revealed by the documents is that Mader switched from 2 Komp. in April to 6 Komp. in October. Because of significant manpower loss, in June 1942 the 1st Bn of each of the 385th sister regiments (344th & 425th) were disbanded. The 1/385 (Mader's Battalion) was not thought to have formally disbanded until the winter of 1942 when the Division was officially reorganized. This would at least make one wonder if Mader and at least some of the soldiers in his battalion were reorganized to flesh out the 2nd Battalion prior to December. A really neat collectable group.

A really neat and unusual little group. This soldier served with the Railroad Engineers on the Russian Front. These units had a dramatic and often unknown effect on the German war effort on the Russian Front. Especially in the early days of the invasion, the depth of the German penetrations was governed by how quickly the captured Soviet railroads could be placed back in service. When the Germans captured Soviet territory they often had to repair the tracks and rail yards that were damaged in the fighting or by the retreating Soviet soldiers. More importantly the German Railroad Engineers had to re-gauge almost all of the track they captured. The Soviets used a wider gauge (the iron rails were farther apart) so before it could be used by the German engines and railcars the rails had to be reset to the narrower gauge. Without rail transport of supplies the Germans simply could not sustain their massive penetrations of Soviet territory. This soldier, whose name is unfortunately not recorded, received both the War Merit Cross 2nd Class and the Russian Campaign medal for the winter of 1941/42. In addition the group includes his dog tag which notes his unit, his Sleeve Grade Insignia (Oberschutze) and his photo. One last interesting thing to note is that in the photo he is missing part of his left index finger.

Generaloberst Dietl
  $385.00

# 3128

Great signed photocard of Dietl. Also a letter from his Adj. about 5 months before the general was killed in a plane crash. Generaloberst Dietl was one of the most well known Gebrigsjager officers. He held the Knights Cross with Oakleaves and Swords. His name and the fighting in Northern Norway and Finland created a legend. Possibly his greatest moment came when commanding the 3rd Mountain Division at the battle of Narvik in 1940. By the narrowest of margins the division (less it's 138th Regiment) eventually drove the British and French expeditionary forces from Narvik.

Nice signed pencildrawing card of Generalmajor Hirschfeld. An extremely interesting officer and holder of the Knights Cross with Oakleaves as well as the German Cross in Gold. Another Gebrigsjager, he spent most of the war with the 98th Gebrigsjager Regiment. Though considered a very competent officer, sadly his name is linked to responsibility for the massacre of nearly 5,000 Italians on the Greek island of Cefalonia. They had been disarmed when Italy quitted the Axis cause. Apparently the Germans took offense to the Italian Division's (Acqui Division) celebration at it's departure from the war. He eventually rose to command one of the most interesting Infantry Divisions in the German Army. The 78th Sturm Division was a unique experimental unit. It was organized especially for assaults coordinating heavily armed infantry with heavy direct fire artillery. It achieved a reputation for being able to tackle especially tough positions. It was destroyed at Orsha along with most of Army Group Center in the Soviets summer offensive in 1944. It had such a reputation that the Germans reformed it (largely at Himmler's urging) as the 78th Volks Sturm Division. Von Hirschfeld was chosen to command the division in December but was killed on 01/18/45 at the Dunkla Pass.

Superb framed Iron Cross 2nd Class Document awarded to SS Sturmmann Franz Hagewald of the 2nd Flak Battalion, 2nd SS Division Das Reich. He was awarded his Iron Cross on January 27th, 1944. During this time, while much of the "Das Reich" division was withdrawn from the Russian Front for the purpose of refit and reorganization, after having been mauled at Kursk, Franz's unit and other elements of "Das Reich" were left behind in Russia to fight on. His battle group was surrounded by the Russian winter offensive and then latter rescued. It was during this period of intense fighting that Franz was awarded his Iron Cross. Either Franz or someone very proud of his service had the document nicely framed quite a long time ago. Also found with the document at the same estate was the medal that is also being presented. It is a post war medal recognizing Adolf Hitler. It is also sometimes referred to as the "Unrepentant Nazi Medal".
