The relatively high product code of this set highlights the fact that Zvezda avoided making figures for World War II for a very long time, presumably because there were already so many sets available from others. However the success of their Art of War game pieces, which originally concentrated entirely on the 1941-45 war on the Eastern Front, seems to have prompted them to cover this conflict with a couple of basic sets, of which this is one. The set claims to cover the period 1942 to 1944.

In terms of historical accuracy these figures present no problems. All wear the same standard tunic and long marching boots, plus the classic steel helmet. All are also fairly well equipped compared to many sets of Germans, for they all have full assault packs made up of the mess tin, text section, gasmask carrier with anti-gas cape wrapped round it, bread bag, water bottle and entrenching tool.

The detail on these figures cannot be faulted, although in a couple of places where the torso is not facing the mould the chest is missing detail. For the most part however the detail is excellent, as it is on the weapons, so the usual first class Zvezda effort. Every single figure requires some element of assembly, but we found this worked well (if a little fiddly for those without nimble fingers). The poses certainly benefit from this approach, being anything but flat, so while it takes a while to build all the figures in this box the result is well worth the effort. As you can see there is no flash and no extra plastic.
