Das Maschinengewehr Gerät (MG 08) mit allen Neuerungen – The Machinegun Device (MG 08) with all Improvements – This private purchase manual (Soldiers were often expected to purchase many of their own manuals with their own pay) was published by Schmitt, exclusively for the MG-08. It is 116 pages, with 5 tables (fold-outs) at the end. Four fold-outs are black and white, two of them are over 16″ long, and the color picture has been divided into two pictures on separate sheets so that the full 25″ picture size could be represented without reducing the overall size. This color picture has the part names of the MG in both German and English (on the color table only). .All 5 tables are their full, original size, and the Table 1 that was originally in color, has been reproduced in color for this manual. This operator/training manual explains the MG in detail, with 47 illustrations within the text. .Dated 1934, about 8-1/2″ High x 5-1/2″ Wide.
