It was often said that Hitler loved animals more than people... perhaps there is more than a shade of truth in that. During the First World War, "Corporal Hitler's" best friend and most loyal companion was a stray mongrel he adopted while serving in the trenches on the Western Front. 'Blondi' was Hitler's German Shepherd given as a gift to the Fuhrer by his Chief of the Nazi Party Chancellery, Martin Bormann in 1941. These 1/30 scale metal figures feature remarkable detail and are hand painted for an authentic look. 2 ½" tall.
