2CM FLAK 38 FLAKVIERLING 38
CAMERA ON N.29
Autore: Alan Ranger
Circa 120 foto dell’epoca recuperate dagli archivi della Wehrmacht in questa serie di monografie a cura di Alan Ranger, dedicata ai più famosi mezzi, uomini o battaglie della seconda guerra mondiale.
This latest photo album in the 'Camera On' series covers in photographic detail the German usage of the 20mm Flak 38 anti-aircraft gun and its quadruple mounting version, the Flakvierling 38. These weapons saw extensive action on all battlefronts of the second world war wherever the German armed forces saw service and whilst the 20mm Flak 38 was an excellent weapon when first developed, by the time it entered service even the German army knew that it was in need of a replacement weapon system and the Germans concentrated on 37mm weapons and above from then on. However, the Flak 38 still gave valued service against low flying aircraft and ground targets and proved to be a valued weapon throughout the war. It even saw service with some other nations well into the 1970s. This book contains over 140 photographs taken by ordinary German soldiers of both the anti-aircraft guns as well as their crews in many of the areas within which they operated.
