I received my copy of "Under Arms for the Kaiser" early last week and have spent much time since then reading and looking over the book.

It is a truly magnificent reference that was a huge undertaking for Mike - definitely a "labor of love". The book, that fills a huge void in the IG collecting community, focuses on all shoulder boards/straps of Imperial Germany. Additionally, the book provides information on the regiments, quick reference charts that can be cross referenced and is supported with thousands of photos of boards/straps and portraits of those boards/straps in wear. This book is a must for any IG collectors library.

The only negative thing I have to say about the book is that I now might have to start collecting IG boards/straps......and as you all know "you can't have it all" but this book makes me want to try.
