Das M.G. 34, by Denckler – ENGLISH TRANSLATION. Denckler put out a wide variety of quality manuals for the German military in the 1930s – 1940s. This one is well written and well illustrated, with excellent explanations and illustrations about the internal operation of the gun. 70 pages, 28 illustrations, and more details about the lafette telescopic sight than in any other manual. This manual has a good start for explaining how to operate this typically German, over-engineered piece of hardware.
