und Kommandotafel - Orders and Commands Table. This is
a little 6 page pamphlet describing common orders and commands.
Take a look at the pictures to see some of what it includes.
im Ersatzheer - Shooting Instruction in the Replacement Army.
A 42 page manual with the updated details for teaching the recruits
how to shoot the rifle, light M.G. and heavy M.G. This is not really
a stand alone book, as it was meant to update the existing shooting
book (H. Dv. 240) and was to replaced the existing Appendix 2 of
the "master book" H. Dv. 1a.. 8.5" H. x 5.5"
W. It has the more "modern" (1943) stardards for conducting
shooting exercises, school shooting exercises, and combat exercises.
See the sample pages for a typical page content. It is worth reading
by itself, but frequently references the H. Dv. 240 (available below).
Unteroffizier - The Non-Commissioned Officer. This is
a 48 page manual filled with what it means to be a good NCO and
how to accomplish that. It is not specifically about training the
recruits, rather a doctrine manual of how a proper NCO takes care
of and teaches the men, how he inspires them to be their best, gains
their respect, what it means to be NCO, and how to behave properly
whether you're in the service (on duty) or not. 8.5" H. x 5.5"
- Überwinden Feindlicher Minensperren - Information
Sheet - Overcoming Enemy Mine Barricades. This manual was originally
published in 1942. This manual describes the equipment and techniques
used for identifying and clearing minefields and mines in general.
36 pages, 8.5" H. x 5.5" W.
Leichter Personenkraftwagen K2s, Typ 166
- Light Personel Vehicle K2s, Type 166 (Schwimmwagen). This
1943 dated military issued manual was for the instruction about
the infamous amphibious vehicle known as the Schwimmwagen. It has
32 transparencies of the vehicle, which let you see the construction
in layers. Lift off a transparency, and see the next deeper layer
of the vehicle's construction, while the back view of the previous
transparency is on the left page. There are 4 groups of transparencies:
the body, motor, rear axle, and front axle. 8.5" H. x 12"
W. This manual is an exact reproduction, made by the same publisher
that printed it in Germany in 1943. As a reproduction, it is still
in its original German language and has not been translated . I
have limited quantities available, as I'm importing these, so if
I run out, it will take weeks to get more (if I can get them).
