Translation by:- John Baum
Original published in Berlin 1934
A soft back book in as new condition
116 pages with many b&w diagrams plus 5 fold out tables – one in full colour
This private purchase manual (Soldiers were often expected to purchase many of their own manuals with their own pay) was published by Schmitt, exclusively for the MG-08. It is not a combined manual with the MG-08/15, and as such, has details for the 08 that aren’t in the other manuals. It is 116 pages, with 5 tables (fold-outs) at the end. Four fold-outs are black and white, two of them are over 16″ long, and the color picture has been divided into two pictures on separate sheets so that the full 25″ picture size could be represented without reducing the overall size. This color picture has the part names of the MG in both German and English (on the color table only).
