Captured Arms / Beutewaffen is Vol. IX in the Propaganda Photo Series on World War II German small arms. This volume is dedicated to the millions of small arms that were captured by the German army in more than twelve different countries. Most weapons were reissued to the German army, para-military units and auxiliaries. They were often used in their original state, but sometimes modified to German standards.
This book covers all small arms described in the 'Kennblätter fremden Geräts' (instruction sheets on foreign material) and many other weapons. Last but not least, Captured Arms / Beutewaffen features a unique selection of original German World War II propaganda photos, depicting captured arms in use in German service.
