In theory there was no German army, but a ''Bundesheer'' (federal army) consisting of the Royal Prussian Army and the armies of the other sovereign states [[UsefulNotes/AllTheLittleGermanies (three kingdoms, six grand duchies, five duchies, ten principalities and three free cities)]] that made up the Empire. Consequently there was no German secretary of war, only a Prussian and a Bavarian minister of war. The armies of all the medium-sized and smaller states were integrated into the Prussian army just before or just after the foundation of ImperialGermany, and the Prussian army also included the soldiers recruited from Alsace and Lorraine (annexed from France in 1871 and administrated by the central German government). Bavaria, being the second-largest state and monarchy had a larger autonomy in military matters than the other non-Prussian states and to mark this its military units were numbered separately, even though as far as arms, uniforms and equipment went the differences were not bigger than between e. g. Prussian and Saxon units. German officers and soldiers would always wear two cockades on their head-dress, a black-white-and-red one for the empire and one of different colours for the nation they belonged: black and white for Prussia, white and blue for Bavaria, red and black for Württemberg, white and green for Saxony and so on.
