Organization Book of the NSDAP (Organisationsbuch der NSDAP)-This small hardcover is one of the most important books published during the Third Reich. Written by the infamous Dr. Robert Ley, it contains illustrated information about the membership, political leadership, uniforms, symbols, insignia, service requirements, flags, standards, daggers, swords, and other equipment of the many paramilitary units that made up the NSDAP or Nazi Party. It was published in 1937 by the Reich organizer of the NSDAP. The book opens with a Hitler portrait frontispiece facing the title page. There is a full index followed by a foreword by Adolf Hitler, a few words by Rudolf Hess and an introduction by Reichs Organizations Leader Dr. Robert Ley. The SA, SS, HJ, NSKK, RAD, etc., is dissected and explained so that anyone who had the need could understand all the specifics of how it was organized, the uniforms its members wore, and the requirements and responsibilities of membership in it. It contains 550 pages and contains both black and white and color illustrations. Written in German, this book was confiscated and destroyed by the Allies; very few of these remain, and very few in good condition. This book is in almost immaculate condition considering its age. Tight binding, inside pages very clean. A real beauty and again, a scarce example of this very interesting book.
