Excellent reference book on THE GERMAN SNIPER THE MAN AND HIS WEAPONS. 164 pages, softback Full of details on German Sniper weapons with detailed photos. Printed in 1975 in the USA. PLEASE NOTE: This book has suffered wet damage about 15 years ago. It's dry now but some of the pages (27 to 38) are still stuck together and would need carefully pulling apart. Many of the lower page sections are wrinkled and stained but the text and photos are still clear. YES this devalues the book so it's price is reflected with this in mind. I saw a copy of this book sold for £90 about 5 uears ago ! Generally grade 7 - 8
