What to expect from the 'German Infantry Weapons of the Second World War'
The equipment of the German Army in 1939 reflected the High Command’s policy of having the smallest variety of weapon types consistent with meeting operational requirements.
Initially the emphasis was on developing only selected types for mass production. As the battle fronts widened and conditions in the theatres of operations became more diversified, they were forced to increase the variety of their weapons.
Detailed descriptions and specifications are accompanied by diagrams and photographs, providing an invaluable resource on Germany’s infantry weapons of WW2.
