445 photos in two albums!! Absolutely one of the best US armored groupings we have ever offered! Named to Andrew HANKOVSKY who served in B Troop of the 92nd Can Recon Squadron of the 12 Armored Div. He was from Lakewood Ohio. All from the same man who served in the 92nd Cavalry Recon Squadron of the 12th Armored Division! At war's end he transferred to the 1st Armored Division and played in the unit band. Comes with some very RARE insignia including two matching theater made Armored tabs " Old ironsides" and "Hellcats." Guaranteed wartime theater made; you will never finding a matching pair like this again! The Patch & Tab pairs would sell for $800 by themselves! Also rare are the two matching pairs of DI's - one for the 92nd Cavalry Recon Squadron and the other for the 81st Cavalry Recon Squadron - These would sell for $500 for each pair! there is also a very rare wartime unit history for the 92nd Cavalry Recon Squadron as well as an equally rare 1945 printed unit roster! The large, fold-out 12th Armored Division map is also a rare find! It is amazing that all this survived together for so long due to the group butchers amongst us. The photo content is fantastic - 445 photos!! Filled with good armored photos, fantastic German-made studio portraits showing rare unit theater made unit patches and DI's in wear. Many photos are captioned on the reverse. The 12th Armored Division liberated LANDSBERG CONCENTRATION CAMP and there are original, unpublished photos the man took of the camp and prisoners. Also photos of 80th Armored Regiment tanks with insignias visible, nice photos of take nicknames and emblems painted on sides of thanks, good images of tanker gear in wear, burning villages, captured German vehicles in use by the unit, identified locations in France, Belgium and Germany, good jeep photos, original photos of one of GOERING'S houses where they went looking for Frau Goering but she had left "we rode some of his finest horses though and looked over part of his loot."

Original Waffen-SS Wehrpass issued to Hungarian born man, ALOIS BARTH. Wehrpass shows he volunteered on July 4, 1943 for the SS and was assigned to SS Ersatz Kommando "Südost." Has a super photo of him in SS uniform. It is interesting to note that he was assigned to vast War Crimes related organization, the Rasse- und Siedlungshauptamt der SS, RuSHA - the race and Resettlement Office of the SS. He was probably assigned there due to his knowledge of Hungarian and Serbian languages. It was the organization responsible for "safeguarding the racial 'purity' of the SS" within Nazi Germany.Following the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, the RuSHA worked in partnership with VOMI in the "germanization" of captured territory, monitoring of settler welfare, and the plantation of ethnic Germans in areas designated for settlement by the SS, particularly in occupied Ukraine. This involved in part, the resetting of Germans in the Nazi occupied Eastern territories and ejecting the native families from those lands.
