This German-language pamphlet was available for purchase by all recruits to the German Army from the 1930s onwards, and is a vade mecum to help in the first weeks of training.It includes some of the practical material seen in other publications, but is important in being a compendium of all the things a recruit should know.It details uniforms and their care, weapons, equipment and basic tactics and drill.It affords the modern day re-enactor and historian a wealth of material to understand what recruits to the Wehrmacht were expected to know, and what they were trained to do.Once again, this is a reprint that needs to be in the library of anyone interested in the German Army during the Third Reich.The diagrams and photographs are self-explanatory, and even a smattering of German will enable the reader to gain access to information not published anywhere since the war ended.
