Mittler & Sohn of Berlin for use by airmen of the German Armed Forces during the Third Reich and World War II. It is the 12th Neubearbeitet or updated edition of Der Dienstunterricht in der Luftwaffe, or edition for Airmen in the Air Force assembled by Oberst Ehrenfried Tschoeltsch of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium.
This very heavily illustrated 5-1/2 x 7-1/2 inch, 304 page, 1941 edition manual has over 250 illustrations in the text of things like visor caps, uniforms, shoulder boards, collar tabs, proficiency badges, sword and bayonet knots, insignia, medals, Luftwaffe badges, recipients of the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross, the Oak Leaves to the Knights Cross, and the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, etc. Of course it also contains specific information for the comprehensive training of air force troops.
In the front of the book there are portraits of Adolf Hitler (Oberster Befehlshaber der deutschen Wehrmacht) as well as the Nazi generals in charge of the Luftwaffe (Hermann Göring), Army (von Brauchitsch), Navy (Raeder), Generaloberst Milch (State Secretary of the Air Force).
