By 1915 it had become painfully obvious that the German army's massed-infantry tactics were not working, due to the evolution of the grim realities of trench warfare. A new type of soldier was evolving within the ranks of the entrenched German army. They were formed into smaller units, highly trained and specially armed for the very purpose of taking enemy trench works. The name "Stosstruppen" (Storm Troops) captured the soldiers' imagination and it became the term that blanketed all of the 'Shock Troop' Sturmpioneer battalions that were officially forming within the German army in 1915.
This 12" figure has over 20 points of articulation and features the authetic look of a WW1 German Assault Trooper. It comes with an historally accurate uniform.
