I just received my copies of Gerd Mischinger’s books on the East German ammunition factories at Konigswartha and Spreewerk Lubben.
I must say that I am VERY impressed with these two books. At first, I thought I would be disappointed because the books are only a bit more than 1/4" thick each, but once I opened them up, WOW!
Tons of great color photos, blueprints, boxes, crates, sectioned cartridges, etc… I felt like a kid in a candy store! Not only are the cartridges covered, but the production equipment, box filling machines, etc… Very comprehensive! All in German, but as someone recently said here, the pictures alone are worth the price of the books. I still have my German-English dictionary from high school, so I will be busy for a while!
These books were ordered from Josef Moetz at waffenbeucher.com and I was very pleased with the service he provided. He even graciously tolerated my poor attempts to communicate in his native language! Be advised that postage is as expensive as one of the books! These two books plus the “Beutepatronen” book I also ordered, plus shipping, cost under $120 USD and it only took 11 days to get from Austria to the USA.
