The Iron Cross has always been more than a simple military decoration. For Prussia, and later Germany, it represented "The Iron Time" of 1813. The birth of independence in the middle of a Europe dominated by Napoleonic France. Casting off Bonaparte's oppressive yolk marked the beginning of Prussia's march toward a unified Germany at Versailles in 1871. Later would come the disembowelment of the last kaiser's army in World War I. Reborn as evil incarnate, Hitler's "Thousand Year Reich" rampaged and shattered as Gotterdammerung in a fraction of a millennium. These histories are the story of the Iron Cross. A Christian symbol adopted from the fabled Teutonic Knights and used as the crest for two centuries of German holy wars. With over a thousand new color, and B&W photographs created especially for this reference, you will share in this incredible story. Little known tales about the Iron Cross are told, and a detailed analysis of its construction and marks is explored. This is the comprehensive history you have been waiting for.
