ByRotwang Manteuffel

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
During World War 2, the German military constructed an extensive field telephone system that extended from Germany to all parts of occupied Europe, North Africa, and the USSR. This system included components like field telephones, switchboards, wire, cable, and associated hardware and equipment. Today, much of these World War 2 German field telephone components survive in working order and are available for purchase at a relatively reasonable cost. These components can be wired together to be used by reenactors to demonstrate the construction and operation of the field telephone system to visitors at events. The trouble is, most reenactors don’t understand these components or how they were used. The objective of this book is to illustrate, and explain the operation of, commonly available World War 2 German field telephone components. This is done to help reenactors put together realistic, complete impressions and demonstrations. It is also done to provide a better understanding of the field telephone system by historians. This book includes photos and drawings of components that are not commonly available, so they can be reproduced. Finally, this book contains information on uniform insignia for male and female reenactors who wish to do impressions related to World War 2 German field telephone systems.
