The Mp38, 40, 40/1 And 41 Submachine Gun

£29.99

Product description

This hard cover book is in very good condition overall. The cover has some minor wear on edges and corners, as well some very small general markings. The jacket has a few very small tears on it, and also similar wear to the cover on edges and corners. Inside, the pages of the book are without major issue, and don't appear to have any issues which impact enjoyment of the book.

The second volume of the Propaganda Photo Series, a unique series of books on World War II small arms. Each volume covers all essential information on history & development, ammunition & accessories, codes & markings and contains photos of nearly every model and accessory. The most important quality of the Propaganda Photo Series however, is a unique selection of original German World War II propaganda photos, most never published before. The combination of solid information and original photos makes the Propaganda Photo Series the most extensive and reliable source of German small arms"in-use", depicting the weapons and equipment as they were actually used. This book is the first detailed publication on the famous submachine gun that (under his incorrect nickname"Schmeisser") became a symbol of the Blitzkrieg as the favourite small arm of armoured units and parachutists. But despite its fame, reliable information was until now very scarce. In this book, the history and development of the MP38, MP40 and MP41 are described for the first time. Moreover, several prototypes and rare variants are depicted, including the MP38(L) and the MP40/1 with dual feed system. About the Author Guus de Vries is a historian, specialising in the field of firearms. Thus far, he has written fifteen books on firearms history, mostly together with Bas Martens, and numerous articles for magazines in Belgium, Germany, Finland, the Netherlands, Russia, the United Kingdom and the U.S.A.
