Thread: Richard Law's "Backbone of the Wehrmacht"

    Default Richard Law's "Backbone of the Wehrmacht"

    Been reading Law's book which is quite nicely done. Was curious what y'all felt about it as it is now I'm sure quite out of date. Still, for a novice like me quite a resource.

    I still have and use his book...I know, out dated and such, but this was the only thing around when I started.

    Richard's book was a signal achievement when it first came out in 1991. Today it is extremely dated and contains many, many glaring mistakes and false assumptions. I encourage to go to the site listed below and buy these 2 books. I know they are not cheap, but they will save you money and perhaps your sanity. You will thank me later.

    Already have them :-) Best investment a K98k collector can make!

    Backbone is still of great value for the beginning collector, even if some of the data sheets are completely wrong.
