Wehrmacht Auxiliary Forces
Wehrmacht Auxiliary Forces by Nigel Thomas
Book DescriptionIn 1938 Adolf Hitler directed two paramilitary labour organizations - the Reicharbeitsdienst consisting of recruits undergoing pre-military training, and the Organisation Todt that comprised a mobilized force of private construction firms - to assist the military forces. Later the NSKK was organized to assist with supply and transport with the Transportkorps Speer added in 1944. That same year as defeat loomed, all manpower with any military potential was drafted into the Deutscher Volkssturm. The history, equipment and uniforms of these auxillary organizations are detailed in this volume.
