BACKGROUND: During the second world war, the German army fielded nine mountain divisions, and the Waffen-SS an additional six mountain divisions. These were, effectively, specially trained and equipped infantry divisions. Due to the nature of the terrain, and the usually colder climates that they were expected to serve in, special clothing, footwear and equipment were developed specifically for their use, including a distinctive rucksack.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: An olive drab canvas rucksack. Nice complete example showing the expected period wear and use. Couple of minor period sewing repairs. Nicely Rbnr# marked.

GRADE ****1/4                             PRICE $238.00 (Or Best Offer)
