In early 1943, the annihilation of the 6th Army at Stalingrad marked the irreversible turning-point of World War II (1939-1945) in the East. Despite occasional local successes gained in the face of great odds – testimony to the Wehrmacht's extraordinary resilience – from now on Germany was on the defensive. Despite Hitler's damaging interference the quality of German field leadership, and of new weapons, remained high; but each new Soviet offensive pushed the front line closer to – and finally, across – the borders of the Reich. In this fourth title of their sequence author and artist describe and illustrate the developments in unit organization, uniforms and equipment during 1943–45, including information on European and Eastern volunteer units; text and illustrations are supported by detailed tables.

This short book, 48 pages (about half of which consist of illustrations), is geared to figurine, diorama and model builders as opposed to those interested in military history. With respect to the text covering military history, only about one page is dedicated to each section of the Russian front, North, Middle and South. This one page for each section covers six years. Hence, as a result, the history is very abbreviated, to say the least. In addition, and surprisingly for such a book, there is no discussion whatsoever of recruitment, training and doctrine.

However the detail in this book, especially considering its relatively small size, is quite impressive with respect to how the troops actually looked. Although there are no photographs or color plates of troops in combat, on maneuvers, etc. there are a large number that do a very good job at illustrating how the troops actually looked. The photographs are primarily geared towards infantrymen as opposed to other branches such as the artillery and armored vehicle branches. Nearly every photo and color plate covers infantrymen. The detail in these photographs (and especially the color plates) is quite impressive. They provide numerous angles and cover nearly every front and uniforms used in nearly all weather conditions. There are also very detailed pages with officer and other emblems such as combat badges and medals. Nearly all the main text, as opposed to photo and color plate captions, also covers how infantrymen look.

All and all an excellent resource, well beyond just an introduction, for modelers, figurine and diorama builders. This is especially the case considering the small size of the book. Unfortunately its coverage outside the realm of uniforms is almost non-exist. Hence it is of very little value to those interested in doctrine, training, recruitment and combat experiences and history.

This book is the forth of five (so far) from the Osprey's Men-At-Arms Series on "German Army". The other four are:-
MAA 311 The German Army 1939-45 (1) Blitzkrieg;
MAA 316 The German Army 1939-45 (2) North Africa & Balkans;
MAA 326 The German Army 1939-45 (3) Eastern Front 1941-43;
MAA 336 The German Army 1939-45 (5) Western Front 1943-45.
These books basically cover the German Army uniform and rank insignia of specific time and place during WW2. Each book includes 30 to 40 b/w photographs of German soldiers in different types of uniform. There are also 8 pages of colour-plates in each book depicting the uniforms in colour. Since I own all five books, I observed that the drawing skill of Stephen Andrew improving gradually over the years.
These books are by no means a comprehensive account of the uniform of the German Army during WW2. However, the contents (text, photos and colour-plates) are excellent source of reference materials for modelling enthusiasts focusing on WW2 German Army.
This review applies to all five books.

Difficult to give these books 5-star ratings as their limited size is, well, just too limited for more details one would like to see.

Solid 4-star rating.

I would like to provide textual content on that Rating as part of this Review, however am unable to do so. The ACDLT has restricted ability to Comment or Reply (without any prior warning, any specific notification, any identification of specific alleged problems or appeal).

That being so, an inability to respond to Review comments by others (positive, negative, indifferent) would be unfair to myself and others.

But it is a solid 4-star book in this genre.

This work is a splendid example of the new emphasis of the publisher on producing comprehensive works in a handy cheap format compared with the earlier broad brush treatments which covered too much in too little detail.
The new emphasis is on sets covering various national armed forces in as much detail as is available, consistent with the current purpose of the works in the series, which have evolved from an original emphasis on serving the military miniature maker market into works intended to enlighten the general reader in enough detail to satisfy the merely curious and to point the way to further reading.
Most of us, including myself, have little need for, or the patience to read, voluminous studies, often in foreign languages, covering many eras and nations. My main interest is in the US forces, their allies and their enemies in the twentieth century.
That said, these works should be purchased as presented, in sets within the series. Since they are produced as a set, the volumes cover only relevent parts of the general history and the clothing and individual equipment is covered as it appears in each period. The French Army, US Army, British Army, and Italian Army series all have three volumes, covering the major theatres and time periods of the war. The German set has five.
The German Army set should be read in conjunction with many other individual volumes covering their allies and opponents and the other German fighting forces such as the Waffen SS, and the Parachute units, which were part of the German Air Force, the Luftwaffe.
If you want an introduction to the fascinating variety of clothing and equipment of the forces covered, this set is for you.
