The propaganda view of the German Army as being the first modern army fully equipped for war in 1939 is far from historically accurate. The Treaty of Versailles left Germany weak and unable to produce more than token weapons. Germany entered WWII using a variety of obsolete and captured weapons. These, and the more advanced guns that followed, are described in detail and fully illustrated here by noted historian Terry Gander. Includes all types of field and heavy artillery, coastal guns and anti-aircraft guns.
