Captured Arms (Beutewaffen). G. de Vries
Deel 9 van de Propaganda Photo Series is het allereerste boek dat geheel gewijd is aan ‘Beutewaffen’: door de Duitsers buitgemaakte en opnieuw ingezette buitenlandse wapens. Deze waren van vitaal belang voor de oorlogsvoering, want niet minder dan de helft van de 40 miljoen draagbare wapens die tijdens Tweede Wereldoorlog aan het Duitse leger, zijn hulptroepen, bondgenoten en de Volkssturm werden geleverd, was van buitenlandse oorsprong! Na een inleiding over de methode waarmee het buitgemaakte materiaal werd gecatalogiseerd en ingedeeld (met het meest complete overzicht van de Kennblätter Fremden Geräts dat ooit werd gepubliceerd), volgen een twaalftal hoofdstukken waarin het gebruik van buitgemaakte wapens uit België, Frankrijk, Griekenland, Groot-Britannië, Italië, Joegoslavië, Nederland, Noorwegen, Polen, de Sovjet-Unie, Tsjechoslowakije en de Verenigde Staten wordt afgebeeld en beschreven. Verschijnt begin september 2017 (152 pagina’s, circa 150 illustraties) ISBN 978-90-78521-06-8
