Field Marshal Erwin Rommel Collection

Field Marshal Erwin Rommel received the adulation of the German people, laurels from his Fuhrer and grudging respect from his Allied opponents. In World War I, the future Desert Fox commanded mountain troops in the campaign against Italy, earning the coveted Pour le Merite. In World War II, Rommel first gained fame commanding Panzers in the 1940 Battle of France. But it was in the North African desert where Rommel gained everlasting glory as commander of the Afrika Korps. Rommel nearly succeeded in his drive for the Suez, but pleas for more men and materiel fell on deaf ears, and the Afrika Korps ultimately surrendered to superior Allied forces. He later supervised the Atlantic Wall defenses, but in the end was forced to commit suicide because of his complicity in the plot to assassinate Hitler. Our collection features Rommel’s highest decorations, including his Pour le Merite and Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, his Field Marshal collar and shoulder insignia, as well as his silver tank assault badge. Finally, we’ve included an enamel pin with the Afrika Korps palm tree, and a color portrait of the Field Marshal.
 
Presented in a 14.5” x 8” x 1” deep case under glass ready fro display.

Reichsmarshal Herman Goering Collection

Reichmarshal Herman Goering was a key figure in Nazi Germany, and notable for his ostentatious uniforms. The flamboyant Luftwaffe chief was fond of medals and decorations, as well as special insignia made specifically for him. Our collection contains reproduction medals and insignia as worn by Goering. A fighter pilot in World War I, Goering was awarded the prestigious Pour le Merite, better known as the Blue Max, for shooting down the requisite 20 enemy aircraft. Also hanging around Goering’s neck was the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, the highest level of the Iron Cross, and a medal awarded only to Goering. Finally, he also wore the standard Knight’s Cross. Goering’s favorite color was white, and this is reflected in two of the unique insignia pairs included here. The gold crossed Reichmarshal batons worn by Goering on his collar feature a white background. The backing for his gold shoulder boards also are white. The shoulder boards also feature metal eagles and cross batons, again unique to Goering. Also included is the standard Luftwaffe gold officer’s eagle insignia, as well as a formal portrait of the Reichmarshal wearing the medals and insignia in this collection.

Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz Collection

He was a U-boat commander during the First World War, and our Doenitz collection features both the Imperial and Third Reich submarine badges. Also included is his 1914 Iron Cross for World War I, topped by the 1939 clasp for a second award of the medal during World War II, as well as Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, admiral’s shoulder boards, and embroidered hat eagle and hat wreath.

Michael "The Black Baron" Wittmann Collection
Michael Wittmann (April 22, 1914 – August 8, 1944) was a German Waffen-SS tank commander during World War II. Wittmann rose to the rank of SS-Hauptsturmführer (captain) and was a Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross holder and had he survived would have been the recipient of the 200 Tank Assault badge.

He was credited with the destruction of 138 tanks and 132 anti-tank guns, along with an unknown number of other armored vehicles, making him one of Germany's top scoring panzer aces. Wittmann was a household name in Germany and was nicknamed “The Black Baron”. He was not known to Allied forces at the time and was not singled out during the battle.

Wittmann is most famous for his ambush of elements of the British 7th Armored Division, during the Battle of Villers-Bocage on 13 June 1944. While in command of a single Tiger he destroyed up to 14 tanks and 15 personnel carriers along with 2 anti-tank guns within the space of 15 minutes.

The circumstances behind Wittmann’s death near the town of Saint-Aignan-de-Cramesnil, France on August 8th 1944 have caused some debate and discussion over the years, but it had been accepted that Trooper Joe Ekins, the gunner in a Sherman Firefly of the 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry, fired the round that destroyed his tank and killed Wittmann and his crew. However, in recent years, some historians have suggested that members of the Canadian Sherbrooke Fusiliers Regiment may have been responsible instead.

British or Canadian tanks penetrated the upper hull of Wittmann’s tank, igniting the ammunition resulting in a fire that engulfed the tank and blew off the turret.

The crew of the destroyed tank were buried in an unmarked grave.

In 1983, the German war graves commission, located the burial site. Wittmann and his crew were then reentered together at the German war cemetery of La Cambe in France.

Our tribute to this famous Tank Commander includes the 200 Tank Assault badge, the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords, an Iron Cross 1st Class, a first award black Wound badge, a cap eagle with skull and the “Adolf Hitler cuff title of the 1st SS-Panzergrenadier Division.

Oberst Hans-Ulrich Rudel Collection
World War II produced many outstanding combat aviators on both sides, and by virtually any standard, German pilot Hans-Ulrich Rudel was one of the greatest. At the controls of the legendary Ju-87 dive-bomber, better known as the Stuka, Rudel is credited with flying 2,530 sorties, and destroying 2,000 targets, including 800 trucks, 519 tanks, 11 aircraft, four bridges, four destroyers, two cruisers and a battleship! Rudel was the only person to win the Golden Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds to his Knight’s Cross, which is included in our Rudel collection, along with the rarely awarded Pilot-Observer Badge with Diamonds. Shot down by ground fire 32 times, Rudel was wounded five times, and was the recipient of the Gold Wound Badge, which also is part of the collection.

 Generalleutnant  Adolf Galland Collection
Adolph Galland is perhaps the most famous of all German World War II aviators, racking up an impressive number of aerial victories and also serving as one of the Luftwaffe’s top commanders. Known for this conflicts with Luftwaffe Reich Marshal Hermann Goering, Galland was eventually relieved of his role as “Inspector of Fighters,” and returned to aerial combat late in the war, flying the jet-powered ME 262. Galland’s wartime score was 104 kills, including his service in Poland and France in the war’s early stages. Our Galland collection includes the coveted Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds, and the seldom-awarded Pilot-Observer Badge with Diamonds. For Galland’s service in the Spanish Civil War is the Spanish Cross. A formal portrait of Galland wearing his Knight’s Cross completes the set.

Iron Cross 2nd Class Collection

In 1813, King Frederick William III of Prussia introduced the Iron Cross, which has since become one of the most recognizable medals in military history. Awarded to Prussian soldiers for combat heroism, bravery or leadership in the Napoleonic Wars. The reverse displays the imperial crown, the initials FW with a spray of oak leaves and the 1813 institution date. In 1870 Kaiser Wilhelm I revised the obverse during the Franco-Prussian War by adding the imperial crown to the top arm, a “W” for the Kaiser and the 1870 revision date. In 1914 this order was revised by Kaiser Wilhelm II by replacing the 1870 institution date with 1914. The 2nd class Iron Cross was awarded to more than 5 million soldiers during World War I. In 1939 Hitler reinstituted the order but removed the imperial crowns and ciphers and placed the swastika and the 1939 date on the obverse. The reverse contains only the 1813 original institution date..

General George S. Patton Collection

George S. Patton is widely regarded as one of the greatest commanders in U.S. military history. Flamboyant, profane and a strict disciplinarian, Patton’s service in World War II presents the history buff with a series of battlefield victories and public relations disasters. Patton’s victories in North Africa and Sicily were surpassed only by his incredible dash across France in command of the Third Army, and then turning his entire army north and riding to the rescue at the Battle of the Bulge. Equally well-known is the infamous slapping incident when Patton berated an American soldier suffering from battle fatigue, as are Patton’s politically incorrect public pronouncements about the Soviet Union. Our Patton collection includes his highest rank, Four-Star General, and his highest decoration, Army Distinguished Service Cross. Also included is a ribbon rack of his American awards, as well as the famous Third Army “A” patch. The 2nd Armored Division patch shown here includes the “Hell on Wheels” tab, from a famous quote by Patton. Also included is Patton’s gold U.S. officer’s insignia, and a color portrait of the general.
