Imperial German Army

The Imperial German Army (German: Deutsches Heer) was the unified ground and air force of the German Empire (excluding the maritime aviation formations of the Imperial German Navy).

The term Deutsches Heer is also used for the modern German Army, the land component of the Bundeswehr.

The German Army was formed after the unification of Germany under Prussian leadership in 1871 and dissolved in 1919, after the defeat of the German Empire in World War I.
