be prepared for a rather...erm... weighted view of things but lots of good unit histories.

There's a whole bunch of stuff on http://www.youtube.com that can get you in a Wehrmacht kinda mood. Just type in Deutsche Wochenschau and knock yerself bandy on german wartime propaganda reels. Some are better than others...

Genossen,
If you want an Interesting method to carry your Mess tin and Zeltbahn 31,on your back without an A Frame... try this one..

This image has several interesting points including the respect for their fallen Kameraden.

You need a Mess tin, Zeltbahn 31, Bread Bag strap, Two Great Coat Straps..
Have a play.. you will work it out....

Enjoy.

Just found a re-enactment site that gives a pictorial description of pretty much every bit of Heer uniform ever used:

Excuse the quality of the picture, but this is a Waffen SS Mann in Russia, summer 1942. Mess tin is attached to a breadbag strap over the shoulder. Feldfläsche is on the left with the Feldspaten.

Has anyone ever read an Osprey book cover-to-cover?
I tend to buy them, look at the colour plates, then the photos, then decide to read it later. After a few years the book will be lost, sold or lent out.

Yeah.... quite a few. :oops:

Their 'elite Tactics' is good for the text (well most of them, the occasional bad author has crept in) but even then I have spent more time looking at the pictures in truth. Sometimes with the Man-at-Arms ones you just want one nugget of non visual information, like 'how many drummers in a french infantry company', so you just have to read it all.

Isn't that like buying a family pack of cereal just to get the plastic toy?

Well another time you might want something else, so go back and have to read it all again. Plus I have 'book collecting library' syndrome, so if it is on one of my 'subjects' it stays regardless of if it gets opened. Some are used again and again though - mainly for war-gaming rather than this to be honest.
