This is the third “Bradley” figure K&C has produced and, I believe, the best one yet! Standing, hands on hips, General Bradley is dressed as he was on the morning of June 6, 1944 at the time of the Invasion of Normandy. As commander of the US First Army he won the respect and admiration of his soldiers as well as the nickname ... “The GI’s General” He had a long and distinguished military career eventually becoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General of the Army. He died in 1981.
Reichsmarschal Hermann Goring
No leading personality in the Third Reich had as many or as varied uniforms than the large and imposing figure who commanded the Luftwaffe. Goring had almost as much passion for designing uniforms and costumes for himself than creating and running the German Air Force! Here he is in one of his more restrained (but still colourful) personalized Luftwaffe uniforms. .
Oberst gruppenfuhrer ‘Sepp’ Dietrich
Sepp’ Dietrich (1892-1966) was the first leader of the “Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler” and rose from being Hitler’s personal bodyguard and driver to commander of the 6th Panzer Army. A much decorated soldier he was personally brave and devoted to his men. It was said by some other military leaders that he was promoted much higher than his actual military skills merited however at his funeral in 1966 over 6,000 former Waffen SS soldiers attended. Our newest Dietrich figure shows him striding confidently forward in his wartime parade uniform and greatcoat.
