The Reichswehr is the armed forces of the republic of Germany.
By the treaty of Versailles, the Reichswehr is limited to a 100,000 soldiers, can not have a general staff and is forbidden to acquire tanks, heavy artillery and airplanes.
The Reichswehr is divided into the the Reichsheer (army) and the Reichsmarine (navy).
In an effort to "de-prussify" the army, the Reichswehr adopted a new system of rank insignias in 1919 that is completely unlike the old one. It can be seen to the right.
