Sleeve-badge 'Luftwaffe Krimschild 1941-1942'

Beautiful Crimean shield for troops of the Luftwaffe. The book ''The Krimshield'' by Sacha Weber indicates to us this shield was produced by the manufacturer 'Rudolf Souval' and is the variant (A1.13). The shield is complete with the backplate, blue Luftwaffe wool and paper backing. No damage or repairs and all prongs are intact. A very nice unworn Luftwaffe Krim shield in absolute top condition. Here is some background information about the Luftwaffe, the Luftwaffe of the Wehrmacht concerned the Luftwaffe as part of the German army at the time of Nazi Germany, the Wehrmacht. The Luftwaffe was officially founded in 1935 by Hermann Göring and would play a hugely influential role during World War II: the Luftwaffe bombed hundreds of cities, took part in all major combat offensives and inflicted many casualties among the Allied armies and among the civilian population. In the Netherlands, the Luftwaffe became especially notorious for the bombing of Rotterdam on 14 May 1940. About 800 people were killed and 80,000 Rotterdammers became homeless during this bombing. There was also the bombing of Coventry, in response to the Berlin bombing. This bombing raid, carried out by the Luftwaffe on 14 November 1940, also resulted in a significant number of civilian casualties. In Poland, the Luftwaffe became infamous for the bombing of Warsaw in September 1939 and 1944.
