The author presents an in-depth development of Hitler-Jugend Gebiet triangles, shoulder straps, uniforms and their colors, and the ranking systems. Since the 1960s, Bann lists have been available in Europe and later, lists have appeared on the Internet. This handbook is based only on official sources and contains the most complete listing of Bann numbers and their locations. At a glance, one can check a number's development and its relationship to a specific triangle. Additionally, the triangles and shoulder straps for all known special forces and formations are covered, as well as their organizational development. To supplement the massive amount of information contained in this 784 page volume, over 1,000 color photographs of triangles and shoulder straps, plus documents and period portraits support the text.
