I have a few people whom I must thank for their assistance with this article.
Bill Bourque and Ralph Heinz provided me with photos of several tropical items I didn't have.
Diane Schreiber of Brandenberg Historica and Mike Pruett are both recognized experts who not only provided me with photographic examples but also agreed to give the article itself a read. I am sincerely appreciative.
Army Panzer experten Wade Krawczyk was also kind enough to provide examples from his collection.
I must thank my friend and co-moderator, Colonel Scott Pritchett. While on a short leave from his tour of duty in Afghanistan, Scott not only provided many wonderful examples from his Panzer and Grossdeutschland collection, but tore through the article itself with a meticulousness born of a man who packs his own parachute. His suggestions all made noticeable improvements.
Like all of us, I thank Sebastian Bianchi - not only for agreeing to the opening of a 'Uniforms' section, but for creating and maintaining this site, without which this article would be superfluous.
And last, I must thank Cindy, my wife of 35 years. She not only put up with my being on the computer for countless hours (her computer, I might add), but she ploughed through the final product, making sure that the photos were correctly tied to the text - and that it all made sense.
