Miniart 1:35 - German Soldiers at Rest - Plastic Figure Model Kit #35062

After the end of the First World War, the military forces of Germany called Reichswehr were limited to 100,000 soldiers under the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. In 1935, the Nazi army was renamed the Wehrmacht which allowed the Third Reich to increase its military strength. The branches of the Wehrmacht were the Heer (army), the Kriegsmarine (navy) and the Luftwaffe (air force). On the Wehrmacht recruitment posters the "ideal German soldier" was depicted as a blond and blue-eyed young man. Werner Goldberg, a German soldier, became the prototype of that image, however later he was "dismissed" after he had been found out to be half-Jewish. It is believed that the total number of soldiers who were recruited for service in the Wehrmacht during its existence from 1935 to 1945 constituted 18.2 million.
