NEW BOOK OF RICK SANDERS ON THE FLAGS

AT THE 1410 BATTLE OF TANNENNBERG (GRUNWALD)

 

 

New Book on the Flags at the 1410 Battle of Tannenberg Illustrated with Zinnfiguren

 

Dear fellow collectors,

 

A new book featuring Zinnfiguren or ‘flat tin figures’ is being publishing and will be available for purchase in Kulmbach in August, and which you can pre-order now. It is available in German or English, although the pictures here are from the German edition. The English title is “Banners of the Teutonic Order and the Polish-Lithuanian Army and Their Allies at Tannenberg in 1410: Illustrated with Flat Tin Figures”.

 

This new book is about the “banners” (divisions) and flags of the armies at that historic 1410 Battle of Tannenberg - or Grunwald as it is called in Poland - and the Zinnfiguren representing the more than 100 different flags. The book contains over 100 color photos of Zinnfiguren with the flags of the Teutonic Order, the Polish-Lithuanian Army and their allies’ standard-bearers painted by a number of collectors. It also presents plates with the flags of both armies and of the Polish and Lithuanian coats of arms.

 

The book is 100 pages in A4 format, softbound and contains more than 200 color images. It will be available at the August 2022 Kulmbacher Zinnfiguren Börse for €35.00. For EU purchasers who cannot attend the event, the book will be available by mail at the same, €35.00 price.

 

If you are going to the Börse, stop by the Levec/Heiß-Hasala/Sanders stand (D-1) in the Stadl to purchase your copy of the German or English edition, but It would be best to reserve a copy now.  If you are not attending the event, contact ricksanderszf@gmail.com to order your copy and please indicate your name, email address, mailing address, and whether you want the German or English edition.

 

Sincerely,

Rick Sanders
