Originally published in 1942 by the Military Intelligence Service, United States War Department. The principal German infantry weapons are described here in order to enable U.S. troops to identify and, when the opportunity exists, to operate them. Sections include information on pistols, rifles, and grenades, machine guns and mortars, antitank guns and infantry howitzers, and ammunition. Please note these are copies of important historical documents that have been extensively cleaned up by the publisher. While every effort has been made to make these books accessible they sometimes reflect the nature of the age of the originals including the typefaces, print quality and occassional marginalia. These are not poor quality OCR documents with missing pages or tracts illegible text.
