Arranged by theatre chronologically, the book analyses the development of the machine gun and describes how the Germans carefully utilized weapons such as the MG34 and the much vaunted MG42 into both offensive and defensive roles. Supported by a host of other machine guns like the MP28, MP38/40 and the lethal Sturmgerher 44, it depicts how these formidable machine guns fought against an ever-increasing enemy threat.
Using over 250 rare and unpublished photographs together with detailed captions and accompanying text, this book provides a unique insight into German weaponry from early Blitzkrieg campaigns to the final demise of the Nazi empire.

While the title and cover suggest pictures of all of the German armies machine guns the only ones to be found are the MG 42 and MG 34 as well as the MP 40 with a sprinkling of captured Soviet weapons. I was greatly let down by this book and would not advise anyone to buy it
