World War II Military Items

World War II took place between 1939 and 1945 and saw the world’s political geography change permanently. During the war armies introduced concepts like fire and maneuver, tactics that are used to this day. World War II also saw the adoption and employment of unique military equipment that set the standard for the future of war.

Military positions like paratroopers, trained snipers, and special forces first appeared during World War II. Specialty items related to these positions are quite popular and rather rare. Firearms collectors have the option of dozens of different rifles and pistols used throughout the war, and uniform collectors have the same varied options. Other collectibles include photographs and video reels of the fighting. Some of the most popular World War II memorabilia includes flags and military medals, which give a fascinating look at nationalistic tendencies during World War II.


Quick Facts

  • Famed fashion designer Hugo Boss designed the majority of the Nazi Uniforms
  • Finnish soldier Simo Hayha got a record breaking 500 Nazi kills with an unscoped Mosin Nagant, a very popular bolt action rifle
  • General George S. Patton carried a variety of revolvers during the war, even though the weapon was outdated by modern standards
