Needs to be ordered from the Publisher

Created during WWII by the USA War Department, the Handbook on German Military Forces was intended to familiarise command staff with nearly every aspect of Hitler's war machine. Originally classified "restricted", the Handbook was created from the best intelligence that the OSS and other military information sources could offer.

This book contains comprehensive information and analysis of the German military system, and includes chapters on the organisation of Wehrmacht field forces, military and auxiliary organisations (including SS and SA), tactics, fortifications and defenses, movement, supply and evacuation. It also contains a description of German uniforms and equipment. This includes mechanised forces and weapons from small arms to mortars, artillery, vehicles and tanks, and rocket weapons. The Handbook's final chapters are devoted to a study of the Luftwaffe, including its chain of command, equipment, training and tactics. While some of the details within this book may bear review in light of history, it remains one of the most comprehensive compendiums of information about the German forces ever assembled. Although it was declassified after WWII, it's never been easy to obtain a copy of this book.

This facsimile reprint includes all the original text, diagrams and photographs from the final, 1945 revised version of the manual.
