Miniature bronze cross pattée with crossed swords between the arms, with eyelet for suspension; the face with the dates ‘1914 1918’ encircled by a wreath of laurel leaves; the reverse plain; diameter 14.01mm (0.55 inch); without ribbon.

The Cross was instituted as late as 13 July 1934 by President Field Marshal Paul von Beneckendorff und von Hindenburg and is often referred to as the ‘Hindenburg Cross’. 

It was designed by Eugene Godet and there were three versions - for combatants, non-combatants and next of kin, the latter being awarded to the widows and parents of those who died during the conflict.
