I'm quite impressed with this book. Not just because of the level of detail but also the variety of topics enclosed within. For the history buff, this book is a treasure. Books of this quality can often be quite be quite pricey. It is also difficult at times to decide which book to choose from as a result of competition from other books available but if you add this book, you're in love with it from the first couple of pages. If you are trying to build a WW2 library and wish to have an authoritative book on the equipment of the common german soldier, this book is all you really need so look no further. There are certainly more books out there that go into further detail about specific types of equipment or clothing but I doubt there are many (if any) better than this. It's an instant favorite and I'm glad I own it.
Terrific book for those with an interest in material culture. Mr Saiz has accumulated an amazing collection and knowledge base pertaining to the WWII German soldier. Helmets to boots.....and everything in between.
Deutsche Soldaten is an excellent book for the historian and German reenactor alike. It provides sharp photos with lots of information and it is in a reader-friendly format. Like Heitai (Japanese Soldier), Mr. Saiz tells us about a specific German soldier and opens the window on what it was like to serve in the German Army in World War II. A must read for anyone interested in World War II in Europe.
GREAT!! book for people interested in the equipment used in the German military.Definitely a must have for any ww2 book collector.
Very detailed and comprehensive work. It's a must have for those seeking information in this area of interest.
