FEDERAL REPUBLIC of GERMANY   SAVEZNA REPUBLIKA NJEMAČKA

 

      U ljeto 1955., deset godina nakon sloma nacističke Njemačke, Parlament Zapadne Njemačke donosi odluku o prikupljanju dobrovoljaca za osnivanje inicijalnih jedinica Bundeswehra, savezne vojske. Iste te godine prikuplja se stotinjak oficira i podoficira na ceremoniji polaganja zakletve u Bonnu. Većina njih su bili veterani Drugog svjetskog rata koji su trenutno služili u Saveznoj graničnoj službi (Bundesgrenzschutz-BGS). Početkom 1956. prvih 1500 dobrovoljaca se prijavljuje i počinju obuku koju su omogućile američke okupacione snage. Krajem godine, snage broje 65000 vojnika od kojih je oko 10000 prešlo iz BGS-a (uglavnom ratnih veterana). Ponovno pojavljivanje njemačke vojske je posljedica Hladnog rata. Pariškim ugovorom 1954. je vraćen suverenitet Saveznoj Republici Njemačkoj i otvoren joj je put u NATO. U Berlinu, ostaju savezničke okupacione trupe sve do ujedinjenja obadvije Njemačke.  

 
     In the summer of 1955, ten years after the Nazi surrender and the end of World War II, the West German Bundestag (lower house of parliament) voted to authorize the recruitment of volunteers for the initial formation of the Bundeswehr (Federal Armed Forces). Later in the year, a cadre of about 100 officers and NCOs were sworn in at a ceremony in Bonn. Most of the initial volunteers were veterans of the World War II Wehrmacht who had been serving in the Federal Border Force (Bundesgrenzschutz-BGS) since the inception of that lightly armed organization in 1951.Training facilities and equipment were made available by the United States Army, and 1,500 volunteers reported for the first training cycle, which began in January 1956. The Bundestag soon promulgated compulsory military service. By the end of the year, the force numbered about 65,000, including 10,000 volunteers from the BGS, almost all of whom were war veterans. The reappearance of a German armed force, which would have been inconceivable a decade earlier, had become a reality as a direct result of the Cold War.The London and Paris agreements of 1954 restored sovereignty to the Federal Republic and opened the way for German membership in NATO. The four Allies retained occupation powers in Berlin. Allied troops remained in West Germany for purposes of NATO defense pursuant to status-of-forces agreements. With the exception of French troops, Allied and German forces were under NATO's joint defense command.
     
 

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC of GERMANY   DEMOKRATSKA REPUBLIKA NJEMAČKA

 

     U Istočnoj Njemačkoj, 1956. godine, nacionalna zakonodavna tijela donose zakon o formiranju oružanih snaga i Ministarstva odbrane. Slijedi brzo kreiranje Nacionalne narodne armije (Nationale Volksarmee-NVA) sa preko 120000 vojnika. Obuka se vrši po strogom pruskom načinu. Kreiranje ove vojske je bila gesta koju svijet nije mogao ignorirati. Tako su pedesetih godina obadvije Njemačke krenule prema ponovnom osnivanju oružanih snaga i cijeli je taj period do ujedinjenja bio obilježen Hladim ratom. Po ujedinjenju Nacionalna narodna armija je uključena u vojne snage savezne Republike Njemačke.
 
     In East Germany, the national legislature passed a bill establishing the armed forces and the Ministry of Defense in January 1956. The swift creation of an East German armed forces, the National People's Army (Nationale Volksarmee--NVA), more than 120,000 personnel practicing Prussian-style drill, was a dramatic gesture of nationalism impossible for the world to ignore. Thus, the 1950s saw both Germanys embark upon the reestablishment of their military forces, albeit ones firmly restrained within the mutually antagonistic Cold War alliances.
