One thing for sure was they were the best dressed guys at that time.. no doubt.
When you look at the senior officers the were pretty smart looking.



They were indeed greenfruit. A lot of thought had gone into redesigning the uniforms during the thirties.

Say what you want about their political/global mindset, but they certainly dressed like winners. Very cool


I believe Hugo Boss designed and made their uniforms. Look it up.

sorry but this meaningless bunch of pictures has nothing to do with ATS.


Thread is in the " Political Ideology" category...

Seems to me that this fits under "Political Ideology"




Well said my friend

The power of imagery and symbolism is as relvent - if not more in an information world - than it ever has.

If the MattMulder failed to see that, then perhaps his focus has been too much on the WWII big guns and planes.

Indeed very interesting find. Wont' go as far as declaring them fantastic or great, due to the gruesome nature of the regime. If anything, these pictures send shivers down my spine.

Not to get personal or make an attack but these pictures somehow remind me of the United States during election. Everywhere flags, enormous crowds and fanatical cheering.

Somebody else notice the similarities?

Edit for crappy spelling and still missed some...

SS Uniforms were designed by SS-Oberführer (Professor) Karl Diebitsch in tandem with graphic designer Walter Heck, Hugo Boss was merely one off the many contracted manufacturers who produced the uniforms.
The black Uniforms were fazed out for the grey SS uniforms by the end of the war.

Karl Diebitsch was also responsible for a lot of the Nazi regalia that we have come accustom to seeing today in those colour photos.

As to the Wehrmacht uniforms (As per my photo) they date back to Imperial Germany, Prussian sense of inspiring awe. The boots, high collars and high place belts were all there to make them look good, Aryan, supermen.

Alot of psychology goes into creating uniforms...

It is not amazing at all.

Hitler was sort of a star for the simpleminded (there is always enough of those). Just people running after a leader that hands them a dream and future.
They did not have much then, and he was able to give them something.
But remember that he came to power illegaly. These events were organized and staged for a great deal. Opponents did not dare to show up or did not want to show their real thought and feelings.

Reminds me of the stupid masses at rockconcerts/sportevents/election gatherings in the US (soory, but it does, without the flags, but with the "touching" of the idol).

People that are not able to dream for theirselves, will enact the dream of another.

Extraordinary Popular Delusion and the Madness of Crowds -





I don't understand how you can call this a popular delusion.

Even though I may not agree one iota with Hitlers policies, this shows that Hitler was simply the catalyst... the German people were the real culprits.

They wanted power over others and were willing to kill millions for it.

I never did like Germans.... Wait a minute...isn't that how it starts?




Oh man, talking about delusion...

I think that most of you aren't aware of the truth behind all that US and Zionist Propaganda! I wish I could send you ignorants back in time so you could see and feel how Nazi-Germany really was in those days.




I have now seen the famous German leader and also some of the great change that he has caused. Whatever you think of his methods, - and there are unquestionably not such as in a Parliamentary country - there is no doubt that he has accomplished a miraculous transformation in the spirit of the people, in their attitude to each other and in their social and economic appearance. For the first time since the war, there is a general feeling of safety. The people are cheerful. It is because in the whole country is a general happiness noticeable. It is a happier Germany. I've seen it everywhere, and fellow country people I've met during my trip to Germany were well aware of the changes and were deeply impressed. One man has accomplished this miracle. He is a born leader of men. A magnetic and dynamic personality with a sincere intention, a resolute will and a fearless heart.

(Lloyd George, former British Prime Minister about the German Reich Daily Express, September 17. 1936)

I know, it was the same in Yugoslavia during Tito's times, before the TV. We were all herded out on certain occasions. But the need for spectacle switched in favor of the Black Box eventually. That's how people are being herded nowadays.

You are dealing with an historical hot potato!!!

Unfortunately, the western view of Hitler in both history and popular culture only allows a certain "portrait" to filter through to the populous. The other alternate portraits have both officially (as in the case of German law) and unofficially had the proverbial door closed on any Hitler revisionism.

Irrespective of what Hitler 'really' was, and what his intentions were or were not, as a historian, I personally believe this cultural censorship of history is fundamentally wrong.

The majority of people in these photo's had no choice but to be there and smile. I find the pictures disturbing and sinister. As much as I could not as a Brit., understand the adoration of Obama to compare Hitler with the Obama phenomenon is disingenuous

Hitler was a Facists, he hated socialism, why do people see 'Socialist' in National Socialist.... party and think Hitler was a socialist.

Do some people who call him a socialist just do that to offer some kind of proof against socialism? Bush calls himself a Christian, but I wouldn't hold that against Jesus.

from Wiki answers

The rise of Fascism and similar movements in many European countries after World War 1 was a direct reaction to the rise of Bolshevism. It was, above all, the Nazis' loathing of Communism that gained powerful fininancial backing for Hitler. Without such support he might never have got beyond the beer halls of Bavaria.

It would be a mistake to take the reference to 'socialist' in the name of the Nazi party at face value.

The key reason for the existence of the Nazi party was to fight Communism. The anti-semitism of the Nazis was closely linked to the high proportion of Jews in the early leadership of the Soviet Union (later purged by Stalin) and the perceived role of Jews in the revolution of 1918-19 in Bavaria. (Initially, the Nazis were mainly a Bavarian party).


Note that the recent zest for regarding Nazism as some form of socialism is at odds with the views of nearly all historians of the period. Moreover, for the most part it's a very recent trend. It's also polemical (one-sided and used in order to make a point). If one wants to draw attention to similarities in the way Fascist and Communist regimes function one can talk about totalitarianism. Both types of regimes tried, for example, to politicize vast areas of everyday life

I think what you mean is that he was very anti Communist. Not anti-Socialist as such. And there is a difference.

Yea the Nazi uniforms have won many contests over the years, QUIETLY i might add.. No one wants to say anything good about the Nazi party but whoever designed the uniforms was a linen genius.

Also the Nazi's knew how to throw a political party.. Hundreds of thousands of people in those beautifuly manicured stadiums was awe-inspiring regardless of your beliefs..

Also the night time political marches were also supposedly amazing.. There was brass poles lineing the streets filled with fire.
I just remember seeing footage of alot of fire pits and hundreds of thousands of people marching.

You really don't have a clue about this!!!
Many things from Hitler's National Socialism are still intact here in the Netherlands and in Germany.

The joy on the pictures is real!
One of the motto's of the Germans was
"Strength through Joy!"
It was the unity that brought happiness, they were turning Germany into a paradise. The people were aware of that and also aware that they had to contribute to it themselves for their own benefit.
Self-awareness, that's what Hitler brought to the people.
