About this Product

The common German infantryman played a crucial role in the events that led to the outbreak of war, and the burden of duty lay on his shoulders during the opening moves of the conflict, in the invasion of Poland, the conquest of Norway and Denmark, the Low Countries and France. The Wehrmacht was unstoppable in this period, as it defeated almost every country that took the field against it. This volume examines the recruitment, training, weapons and equipment of the German infantryman in the eventful years building up to and including Blitzkrieg. Weaponry, team roles, tactics, training and personal equipment are all covered.

Biographical Note

David Westwood began studying the German Army whilst at school, and continued at RMA Sandhurst. He has since written a series of books on the organisation of the German Army. His research into the Landser resulted from a request from Osprey to write this volume of the Warrior series, and he is now working on further volumes relating to the campaigns in Russia and Normandy. He lives and works on a mountain in Derbyshire with his wife, dog and three cats, and an ever increaing libary. Adam Hook studied graphic design at art college and began his illustrating career in 1983. He has worked with a variety of educational publishers covering various subjects within the fields of history and natural history. For Osprey he has illustrated numerous Campaign and Warrior titles. Adam lives and works in Sussex, UK.
