Camera On 19, Wehrmacht In The Mud

The Camera On series features text primarily as captions and extended captions in support of a unique collection of images, often from private collections and rarely previously published. This volume contains some 140 photographs of German equipment struggling through mud, a particular problem on the Eastern front as ice melted to cause flooding and waterlogged terrain. – Very Highly Recommended.

This is a book aimed directly at modellers and military enthusiasts. It is based on very 
rare images and covers a fact of life frequently avoided in official photographs. It 
shows how dependent the Germans were, even in the closing stages of the war, on 
horses. This is shown with horses and men being used to help motor vehicles of all 
types to free themselves from the deep mud. It also shows how horse-drawn vehicles 
were still in common use and how they coped well with some appalling conditions. 
This includes a priceless image of a German motorcyclist using his motorcycle 
combination as a cart pulled by a horse.

This book will appeal to military enthusiasts of all specializations and particularly to 
modellers seeking novel new dioramas.
