The National People’s Army NPA or German: Nationale Volksarmee Army NVA Was The Name Used For The Armed Forces Of The German Democratic Republic.
The Majority Of Nato Officers Rated The East German Army The Best In The Warsaw Pact, The Soviet Army Included. Although, It Numbered Only 120,000 Men, This Reputation Was Based On Discipline, Thoroughness Of Training, And Quality Officer Leadership. East German Officers Were Identified While They Were Still In High School And Strongly Encouraged To Pursue A Military Career.
The NVA Was First Established In 1956 And Disbanded In 1990, Just After The Berlin Wall Came Down; It Did Not See Any Significant Combat. It Participated In The Invasion With The Soviet Armed Forces Against The Czechoslovak Interim Government During The Prague Spring Of 1968, But Without Seeing Combat.
The NVA Featured A German Appearance; Including Uniforms, And Ceremonies Patterned After Older German Military Traditions, as is Present With This Coat.
