This book evaluates the equipment for the Americans and the Germans during World War II, and debates who's was better.
By reprinting a report analysing the German army's Equipment in the eyes of the U.S. Army, it offers a look at what the Americans thought of their opponents Equipment. Second, it presents a visual comparison of the equipment of both sides. Mainly in colour, the photographs cover machine guns, handguns, mines, and other weapons; ammunition rounds and storage cases; tanks, jeeps, half-tracks, and other vehicles; uniforms, from caps and helmets to camouflage jackets; medical gear; communication devices; miscellaneous equipment such as binoculars, gas masks, canteens, and shovels; personal items like lighters and cigarettes; awards and insignia; and much more. Black-and-white photos depict notable commanders and show equipment in use in the field.
This is a must-have reference for historians, collectors, modellers, re-enactors, and anyone interested in World War II history or military history in general.
