This superbly-illustrated German-language book is one which every German infantryman would have had access to both during his training and whilst he was on active service. It covers his uniform, equipment and weapons, and details all the basic, hand-held infantry weapons. Although published as a general information book by a private printer, the source of the material was official.This means that all the information in the book is of great value to researchers, historians and re-enactors, because this is the way things were meant to happen! 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 else since the war ended.
