The great slaughter of the ‘war to end war’ of 1914-18 had horrified all the participants, but not all the lessons were learnt. As the vanquished it is perhaps not surprising that the Germans studied alternative methods of conducting warfare more closely than most, and they developed a strategy of fast-moving mobile warfare which was in large measure forced on them by the limitations on the size of their army following Versailles. When the shooting in Europe began again in earnest, the German infantryman was well trained and proved the new theories were both sound and usually devastating.

These figures convey the classic look of German infantry, in that they reflect the early war appearance with their jackboots and smart uniforms without the camouflage and various expedient war items that became so common later on.

Weapons consist mainly of the usual rifles and sub-machine guns seen in all sets of this subject, but two are worthy of particular attention. The second figure in the top row holds a submachine gun with a magazine attached horizontally on the left side. While much of the weapon is obscured this looks to us like one of the early German submachine guns such as the innovative MP18 or one of its derivatives (the MP28 or MP34/35). Such weapons certainly saw service during World War II, but were not so common as the MP38 and MP40 as they were difficult to mass produce. Nonetheless they were excellent weapons and much sought-after, and have rarely if ever been depicted in this hobby before, so are a very welcome variation here. In a similar vein we think the bipod-mounted machine gun in the bottom row is probably the CZ vz26 or vz30, which were excellent Czech weapons.
