In the immediate aftermath of World War II Germany was not permitted to have an army, but with the split into East and West both states reconstituted their armed forces with the blessing of the Occupying Powers. With unification in 1990 came the merging of the two forces, but the German Constitution specifically restricted the armed forces to defensive purposes only. However after a Federal Constitutional Court ruling in 1994 the term ‘defensive’ was redefined to include operations in the supposed long-term defence of Germany, which effectively meant anywhere in the World. As a result, at time of release there are German troops in combat in Afghanistan, and they have also operated in recent years in the Balkans and parts of Africa and Asia.

Although the nature of these missions means actual contact with the enemy is quite rare, many of these poses do seem to be in action, which is no surprise. The first figure in the top row has the look of a soldier on patrol, and since he wears a beret rather than his helmet this impression is confirmed. As a result he is particularly appropriate to much of what German soldiers would do these days, but the other poses are all very well done and very usable. The apparent commander resting his foot on a stone is a stand-out piece, but we liked all these poses a lot.

For the most part then this is a fine set. There are some great poses and the weapons are generally well-chosen, although in recent deployments there has been absolute Nato air superiority, so exactly what the man with the Stinger is attempting to shoot down is far from clear. However everything here is still current at the time of release and reflects well the modern German army.
