NSKK Speer transportkorps

Post by TadPortly » 30 Jul 2008 15:05

Given the very nice pictures posted up in Regio Esercito and R.S.I vehicles by Franzl Rider (thanks again), could anyone point me in the direction of where to find information on this unit/organisation?

Thanks

About this book
Though the 'Wehrmachtsgefolge' (Armed Forces Auxiliaries) were generally inferior to their armed forces equivalents, their contribution to the German war-effort was far from negligible. Auxiliaries including the NSKK, Transportkorps Speer, Reichsarbeitsdienst and Organization Todt supported the Wehrmacht in their duties. In 1944, the strength of these organizations peaked at 3,800,000-40% of the size of the armed forces. As they became increasingly aware of their importance, the Auxiliaries introduced uniform and insignia modifications which made them virtually indistinguishable from their comrades in the armed forces. This book examines the organization, uniforms and history of the various Wehrmacht auxiliary forces.
Contents
Introduction • The NSKK • Transportkorps Speer • Reichsarbeitsdienst • Organisation TODT • Deutscher Volkssturm • The Plates

Paperback; November 1992; 48 pages; ISBN: 9781855322578
