Kriegsmodell Volume 3: A collector's guide to K98k production in the last month of the war... This book will educate and entertain both the casual and the seasoned K98k collector. With over 400 pages of full color and black and white along with never before seen factory documentation and wartime this book is both educational and visually satisfying. Bonus material such as capture boxes, capture papers, accessories, and gallery photos give this book dimension and heft. Includes tills from US Army wartime newsreels (US NARA) showing capture piles and the destruction of captured rifles, along with many detailed photos of features and inspections on 1945 production K98k rifles.
To clarify what happened to the other two volumes... In 2006, Third Party Press set out to write a complete guide to 1945 production of the Kar98k rifle. This book was intended only to focus on the last few months of WW2 K98k production. After release of the book Kriegsmodell in 2010, there was a clamor to write the rest of the story. They renamed the Kriegsmodell book Volume 3 and set out to write the prequel to this book. Their first book in the series (Karabiner 98K Volume 1) covers production and development up to 1938. Volume 2 in the series is in process now, and should be available in 2015. This volume will cover the rest of production spanning 1939-1944. Sorry for the sequence these books were published in, sometimes these things happen. Get these two volumes now, by the time the 2nd volume is published these may not be available, and we're sure you'll want all three volumes…
