I will be selling manuals at the reenactment held at the Midway Village Museum at Rockford, IL on Sept. 22-23, 2018. Stop by, say hello, and look through the manuals I've translated.
German manuals for training, tactics, equipment, weapons and even
military cookbooks have been translated to English for military
historians and reenactors. I also have one American manual about
the German Army. These include Basic Infantry Training, the Unteroffizier
Subject training manual, Stick Grenade, Rifle Grenade, March Compass,
Field Fortifications, Drills and Commands, Zeltbahn, Marching, Shooting
Instruction, Battalion Tactics, Panzergrenadiere Squad Training,
Winter Warfare, U-Boat Commander's manual, Bayonet and Spade fighting,
the 1943 Reibert Service Instruction book, Observation and Measuring
Equipment, Tank Fighting, Recruit and Family Guide, Signal Flags
and Morse Code, the Field Telephone, the field switchboard, security
dogs, 3 German/English military dictionaries combined into one volume,
five WWII German Army issued Field Cookbooks, the Tigerfibel, Pionier
Fibel, Mountain Troops, Panzerfaust, Military Bicycle, Prisoner
of War, the T34 Russian Tank, and two camouflage manuals.

Me 262 A-1 Bedienungsvorschrift-Fl
- Me 262 A-1 Operating Manual-Aircraft.
A basic operating manual for the ME-262 German WWII jet. The original
series of manuals for the world's first combat jet was 10 manuals
( that I know of, but maybe more). Each was small like this one,
and covered specific information. This volume is very interesting,
but only 27 pages with 8 fold-out diagrams in the back. See the
table of contents picture below.
This is being translated now. It looks like
an excellent manual, and that just the explanation of exactly how
to learn to shoot.
für die Schnellen Truppen -
Instruction Manual for the Quick Troops.
This has about 20 pages on how to train the new recruits for anti-tank
and communciations units. It explains how they are selected for
their jobs, how they are cross trained, and what they are to be
taught for the 12 weeks of their training. See the table of contents
and sample pages to understand exactly what this manual is about.
