Abstract The document comprises six separate charts that illustrate the hierarchal relationships within the Wehrmacht at various times during the Third Reich. The first chart shows the general organization prior to the Nazi takeover and the others indicate some of the shifting that occurred during Hitler's thirteen-year dictatorship. The second chart is a printed, laminated production; the others are hand-lettered and hand-drawn. The first, third, and fourth charts appear to be photostatic copies; the fifth and sixth charts are original documents. All of the charts are in good condition.
