About the Book

The Encyclopedia of 3rd Reich Tableware is an enhanced, expanded and heavily illustrated reference book containing extensive historical exposition related to the broad range of personal (monogramed), organizational (logos) and commemorative tableware of the 3rd Reich from the Period of Struggle in the early 1920’s to its demise in 1945. This tableware was used by the people and organizations that were the 3rd Reich. From private service’s such as Hitler’s, (34 pages), Eva Braun, Speer, Hess, etc. to organizations such as the SS (106 pages), Red Cross, Hitler Youth, German Railway (34 pages), the Wehrmacht (110 pages), Party Hotels and commemoratives such as the U-47 submarine, all are included. This book contains over 880 photos / graphics and over 80,000 words of text. The unique aspect of 3rd Reich tableware is that you can hold in your hand a piece of history that was held in the hand of the original history maker. This is an academic inquiry, a disinterested pursuit of truth, an effort to document this intriguing collectors corner and an obvious must for collectors, historians, educators and WWII buffs. In addition, it uncovers little know facts that illuminate the individuals and organizations included.

He spent 34 years in the international, private sector living in both Tehran, Iran and Athens, Greece. Retiring in 1993 he took the predictable track into consulting and later volunteer/charitable activities. He has been interested in the history of WWII and in particular the German decision to initiate a World War with such limited resources in both men and material. It is the German mental aspect that was key and this is abundantly exhibited in their tableware as explained in this 600+ page book.
