LES MATÉRIELS RADIO DE LA WEHRMACHT

(German Radio Sets) 1935 - 1945

by Pierre Metsu

This is the book that hooked me on Wehrmacht communications equipment. It is a hard-cover, large-format book illustrated in full color with several photographs of each specimen showing both the exterior and interior of the device. Also included is a section on radio configurations, accessories, and Panzer wiring schematics. The book is written in both French and English. At this time, there is no better general reference on radio sets used by the INFANTRY. There is no Luftwaffe or Kriegsmarine equipment in this book.
