King & Country: Berlin 38

King & Country: Berlin 38 In the 12 years during which Hitler’s Third Reich existed virtually every person who belonged to any military, para military or civilian organization in Germany wore a uniform! Over the years King & Country has reproduced in miniature many of the most famous (and infamous) of these National Socialist organizations as well as a veritable “rogues gallery” of their leaders.

DDR NVA toy soldiers from PGH Effelder

DDR NVA toy soldiers made by PGH Effelder in 70s/80s.

Since the seventies, toy soldiers made of plastic for the toy shops of the GDR, but also for export were produced at the PGH Effelder (VEB toy country Mengersgereuth - hammering plant Effelder). While the figures were still in various camouflage paintings in the early years, they were later painted, until the end of the GDR, in a uniform olive-green uniform with only a few details.

9th of May 1945 - The Victory Day

The Victory Day is a holiday that commemorates the surrender of Nazi Germany in 1945. It was first inaugurated in the 15 republics of the Soviet Union, following the signing of the German Instrument of Surrender late in the evening on 8 May 1945 (after midnight, thus on 9 May Moscow Time). The Soviet government announced the victory early on 9 May after the signing ceremony in Berlin.
