The accounts collected here are very varied, covering a wide range of combat experiences )from bitter nights trapped between the lines to the periods of open warfare) and attitudes (one memorable contributor, writing in 1917, was quite willing to admit to a less than dedicated attitude to many duties!).
History of War
A well-illustrated book, this is a fine case study in the effect of war as a transformative catalyst in weapons development with inventors, scientists, engineers, manufactures and soldiers interacting together to develop new and ever-more efficient ways of killing their fellow men. Recommended.

The most striking thing about this book is the illustrations. There are a great number of photographs, the majority, not surprisingly, being onboard shots of the gun mountings, but also including some lovely photographs of the complete ship. There are also a number of views of computer generated 3D models of the mountings which show a great amount of detail, frequently not obvious in photographs, which will be a great help to any modeller.
For those intending to model any WWII German warship, this book is a must.
