I got an unused (shrinkwrapped) copy of Tietz, Jürgen, 'Das Tannenberg-Nationaldenkmal - Architektur-Geschichte-Kontext' for sale. Drop me a private message if interested. [SOLD]

Eines der bedeutendsten deutschen Nationaldenkmäler des 20. Jahrhunderts, 1926/27 von den Architekten Krüger errichtet und 1934/35 auf Befehl Hitlers zur Grablege Hindenburgs umgestaltet.

Anhand zahlreicher Archivalien und zumeist unbekannter eindrucksvoller Fotodokumente wird in der vorliegenden Publikation erstmals die Bau- und Nutzungsgeschichte des größten deutschen Kriegerdenkmals ausführlich geschildert und seine aufwendige Innendekoration teilweise rekonstruiert.

I'd always pictured something large like London's cenotaph. I'd no idea that it looked like that! Huge thanks for the pictures and videos.

Hi,

Yep. It's far away from where the battle actually took place. It was named so for political reasons, you know, just a minor reference to medieval times http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Grunwald

Interesting sort of uniform (the man at left). I believe he is a NSDAP Sonderbeauftragter.
