Over the years we have had a lot of folks ask where they could get the flag that was in the movie American History X.
We finally decided to have it made, but we used the actual Wehrmacht Eagle, Swastika and shield on a red flag.
These flags are a 110g/m2 knitted polyester blend material and are 3'x5' (3 feet by 5 feet) in size and have strong metal grommets and double-stitched lines. These flags are exclusively at Tightrope Records.
Some historians, such as British author and ex-newspaper editor Max Hastings,
consider that "... there's no doubt that man for man, the German army was the
greatest fighting force of the second world war". Similar views were also
expressed in his book Overlord: D-Day and the battle for Normandy, while in
the book World War II: An Illustrated Miscellany, Anthony Evans writes: "The
German soldier was very professional and well trained, aggressive in attack
and stubborn in defense. He was always adaptable, particularly in the later
years when shortages of equipment were being felt". They were overextended and outmaneuvered before Moscow in 1941, and in
North Africa and Stalingrad in 1942, and from 1942 to 1943 onward, were in
constant retreat. Other Axis powers fought with them, especially Hungary and
Romania, as well as many volunteers from other nations.
While their wartime enemies attempted to hurt the reputation of the German soldier, most of these accusations were shown to be baseless propaganda.
