Despite the several hundred thousand motor vehicles in World War Two, the German armed forces were still extremely reliant upon the horse. Horse-drawn transportation was especially important for Germany, as it was lacking in its own natural oil resources. Both the infantry and artillery relied heavily upon horse-drawn elements; each German unit employed thousands of horses and thousands of men taking care of them. During the war, many custom-built horse drawn wagons as well as captured units were included in the Wehrmacht’s general transportation. Camera On: a new series of books on the equipment and operations of the German Wehrmacht in WW2. The focus is on the often ignored or overlooked soft-skinned, non-armoured, vehicles used by the German army. These profusely illustrated photo-albums include a large number of previously unseen pictures, many from private sources in Germany. Whatever the rules might have said, German soldiers took many photographs, and these are the basis for this new series!
