The German Army Handbook 1939-1945 PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The German Army Handbook 1939-1945 free pdf James Lucas takes a comprehensive look at the German Army (das Heer) as it evolved during the World War II. In particular the book focuses on its origins in the post-Versailles Treaty era and its resurgence under the Nazi regime- training and organization during the war years- equipment, vehicles and weapons- uniforms, ranks and insignia etc. He also describes the parts played by the Waffen-SS and the airbourne arm of the service, the Fallschirmjager. Although neither force was strictly army, both fought as ground troops under Army commanders. Illustrated with almost 200 photographs and line drawings, this is a guide to one of the most feared armies of the 20th century.
