Download or read book entitled Imperial German Army, 1914-18 by author: Hermann Cron which was release on 01 December 2006 and published by Helion & Company Limited with total page 414 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. A detailed account of the composition, structure and organization of the First World War German Army has long been needed by English-language readers - this work will fill the gap admirably. In more than 300 pages, the authors examine all aspects of the army. A detailed analytical text is followed by an extensive compendium of order-of-battle data. REVIEWS "An interesting aspect of the book is that at the beginning of World War I in 1914, the German Army was essentially the same as it was when organized in 1871. Through the next four years major changes had to be made to handle the changes brought about by the air plane, motorized vehicles, the tremendous growth in artillery and machine guns and of course the impact of the trenches. The book was first published in 1937. It was not translated into English until 2001, and recently (2006) was reprinted in paperback for the first time. In 1937 there had been enough time for the lessons learned to have been understood and they were being incorporated into the new and expanding Germany military."
