12 Stephens, Frederick J. Daggers, Swords and Bayonets of the Third Reich.
Somerset: Patrick Stephens Limited, (1989). First Edition. 
Octavo, geen boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 206 pp. Very Good+, with light rubbing to covers; in a Very Good, mylar protected dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: The profusion of bladed weapons during Hitler's Third Reich was remarkable. Worn principally as emblems of authority, their use extended across the entire spectrum of the Nazi State, from conventional military forces and the SS, to the Hitler Youth, the Police, Diplomatic Service, and such organizations as the Labour Corps, hunting fraternities and even the Red Cross. All such groupings had their own designs of blade, usually graded according to rank. As well as these mass-produced blades, there were other, one-off swords and daggers which were commissioned for presentation to, or by, prominet Nazis. Often these were superb examples of the bladsmith's skill, being elaborately engraved, occasionally with runic inscriptions. Almost without exception, bladed weapons produced for the Third Reich were of the highest quality in terms of both design and execution, which probably accounts for their present-day status as highly-prized collector's pieces. In this superbly-illustrated book, Frederick Stephens shows how the blades of Hitler's Germany were not a Nazi innovation, but were in fact a continuation of a tradition which had existed in Germany since medieval times, representing the carrying forward of skills for which, in the past, Germany, and especially the town of Solingen, had rightly been famous. Daggers, Swords, and Bayonets of the Third Reich is a unique study in providing both a comprehensive introduction for the new collector and researcher, as well as information that even the advanced student of the subject will find revealing and informative.
