Many of the photographs, all from the authors collection, come originally from the albums of individuals who took part in the war.
Arranged by theatre chronologically, the book analyses the development of the machine gun and describes how the Germans carefully utilised weapons such as the MG34 and the much vaunted MG42 into both offensive and defensive roles.
Unlike Seidler's work on the 12thSS, this book is chock-full of fantastic photos, the majority of which I've never seen before. The quality of the photos is very good, and the subject matter excellent! I was really disappointed with Seidler's book from this series on the 12thSS, yet this book is the exact opposite to me in terms of the photos, subject matter, etc.
