“The artillery shapes the battlefield—machine guns defend it!” This sentence characterises the battles of materiel fought during the First World War like almost no other. After the outbreak of war in 1914, the revolutions in armaments of the late 19th and early 20th centuries resulted in industrialised warfare, which was marked in particular by the use of machine guns—and artillery. This illustrated book ,that is published by the renowned Verlag Militaria ,with 520 pages and ca.1000 photos and illustrations traces the development of German machine guns and graphically depicts why they became the most feared infantry weapons of the First World War.
