9780615371160: Exotische: Rare Cloth Headgear of the Third Reich

The Wilson History and Research Center is proud to present the first volume of a planned series on rare and exotic headgear of the 20th century. This initial volume will focus on soft caps of the German Third Reich. Hundreds of pieces of extraordinarily unique and never before seen headgear has been masterfully photographed and presented in this 200 plus page hardbound work. The authors have graciously been granted access to some of the most prestigious collections throughout the world and have presented these extremely rare and unique treasures in a high manner and quality. Beginner and advanced collectors alike will have a rare opportunity to see digitally photographed details of caps that have never before been publicly presented. Many of these caps have only been seen, if at all, in grainy period black and white photographs. This work promises to be not only a wonderful opportunity to see the greatest collection of Third Reich headgear ever assembled in one volume, but also to share in a tremendous learning forum. The authors have employed the latest and highest quality digital photography in capturing and presenting these rarities. Exotische affords the collector and researcher a unique opportunity to view these historically significant caps and provide a permanent reference for comparison and education. This photographic study will present painstaking detail of both the caps and their high quality insignia. This work is presented with the thought in mind that knowledge can only be obtained through the experience of seeing the quality of construction and attention to detail utilized in the originals. Each of these rare caps will be identified and described. Exotische will present an astounding array of headgear ranging from caps worn by Third Reich leaders (Hitler, Göring, and Dietrich) to the most unusual and obscure paramilitary and civil organizations for visual inspection and study. The authors are incredibly excited about this endeavor and are looking forward to sharing these amazing pieces of history with fellow collectors, historians, and researchers.
