A much decorated soldier he was personally brave and devoted to his men. It was said by some other military leaders that he was promoted much higher than his actual military skills merited however at his funeral in 1966 over 6,000 former Waffen SS soldiers attended.
This newest Dietrich figure shows him striding confidently forward in his wartime parade uniform and greatcoat.
