Shock Troops Attack! ...

   A German assault trooper is shown about to throw a "potato masher" hand grenade. He's armed with an MP-34 submachine gun, and carries a map case and binoculars in addition to the rest of a Wehrmacht NCO's standard equipment. Undated German propaganda company postcard, from the Webmaster's collection.
