Army

Collection of German WW2 Awards.
After World War I ended with the capitulation of the German empire, the treaty of Versailles imposed severe constraints on the size of Germany’s armed forces. The army was limited to one hundred thousand men with an additional fifteen thousand in the navy. Germany immediately began covertly circumventing these conditions.
The number of soldiers who served in the Wehrmacht during its existence from 1935 until 1945 is believed to approach 18.2 million. This figure was put forward by historian Rüdiger Overmans and represents the total number of people who ever served in the Wehrmacht, and not the force strength of the Wehrmacht at any point in time.
