    Default Page 162 - image description error, bottom right photo

    Bottom right image caption should refer to the "original front band has been modified".

    Default Page 545 RG34 Identification

    The 5th RG34 from the top is identified as 'Gustav Appel RG34 produced in 1938' appears to be 1935 dated.

    Default Page 57, bottom left photo, states wrong hand

    Page 57, picture of Wehrmacht Army guard armed with a Kar98a on left side of page states "The rifle is also fitted with what appears to be a strap hold down, visable just above right hand." It's above his left hand, the right hand isn't even visable.

    If you would have paid me the $300/hr plus food and alcohol per diem I offered to edit that wouldn't have happened.

    Default Page 244 . . . Text dealing with pictured floor plates . . . .

    Near bottom of page, text below pictures of two “S”-marked floor plates, refers to them as “followers”.
    Since I received this tome last week, and reading EVERY word printed, (I’m only up to page 244 so far) I must say I am truly impressed at the HERCULEAN effort put forth by the authors, editors, and world-wide contributors of this “encyclopedia”!
    I only offer my “corrections” in case there is a future printing.
    GREAT JOB EVERYBODY!

    Since I purchased all four volumes of this colossal work as they became available, am positively delighted that I did so, and herewith express enormous admiration for the authors' achievement, I think I've earned leave to make the following observation.

    Advanced scholarship, stunning photography and magnificent printing ought not to be blighted by elementary mistakes in English punctuation and usage. They clash; it puts one's teeth on edge. Two consecutive sentences on the back cover of the dust jacket of Volume I are an unfortunate example: "The K98k rifle was Germanys principle battle rifle from 1935 until 1945. In those 10 years in K98k rifle left it's mark on the history of the world."

    Any competent editor --even if he or she knew nothing about guns-- would have caught all three errors.
