German Cross

Collection of German WW2 Crosses.
The German Cross was designed by Professor Klein of Munich, and receives its Order and Cross title because the swastika is technically a cross, though the award does not in the least resemble a traditional cross as we mostly think of one. It was instituted in two divisions; the German Cross in Gold was to be presented for Military bravery in the face of the enemy while the Silver Cross was awarded for leadership not directly involving combat operations. In this way the Gold Cross was associated with the Iron Cross, and it had a prerequisite of an Iron Cross 1st Class while the Silver division was closely related to the War Merit Cross, and the 1st Class of that award was needed in order to receive it.
