Military parades are used to show power of a nation through a display to the intended audience, the uniformity, weaponry and strength 💪 of its armed forces.
The author, Horst Schelbert in his heavily illustrated book 'Parades of the Whermacht' shows the propaganda use these parades provided in the lead up and early years of WWII. The Nazis would organise several based on visiting foreign dignitaries, memorials days, and Nazi party members birthdays.
If you enjoy the images of uniforms, weapons or just want to be carried by the gaze of the crowd, then this is a fantastic reference book for any military historian's Library.
