An important section to help understand how
the German army functioned which deals with the Evolution of the different
branches of Service and what their role was during the war.
A pet project that captures the imagination
of many is the subject of Sturmtruppen and Trench Raiders. This section
contains not only German but also accounts and items from other nations.
A separate point of interest is a
collection of photographs of machine gunners of the German army.
Of great use to collectors of documents is
a page of unit designations and abbreviations as well as a list of the higher
commanders from divisional commanders upwards. Altough fake WW1 award documents are rare, they do exist, a small section on these can be found HERE.
Although we usually associate WW1 with a
bloody war of attrition in the trenches of Western Europe
there were also phases of a war of movement, especially on the Eastern Front. The
accounts in these sections contain accounts of the actions and often include
first person accounts of people who were involved in the actions.
