From First World War to World War II, Germany played an important role in the formal development and application of military sniping weapons and tactics. The Scharfschutzen - or sharpshooters - of the German military machine would become fearsome figures in the history of modern warfare. They were cold and nerveless while stalking their human prey. Patience was their best comrade. And their technical expertise with their sniping rifles and optical sights was at times super-human. 'The German Sniper 1914-1945' traces the evolution of Germany's sniping weapons systems and the specially trained Scharfschutzen who used them with such deadly efficiency. Covers also in great detail the optical sights, the role played by the Selbstaladegewehr 43 semi-automatic rifle, definitive marking identification information for all relevant sniping mounts, and sniping rifles. Of special interest to the historian is a chapter that presents interviews with World War II Germany's top three master-snipers. Here is the complete story of a most significant era in modern small arms development, highlighted by more than six hundred exceptional photographs.
