It wasn't all beer and bratwurst 30. Juli 2010
Von Douglas E. Nash - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
During the Second World War, Hitler's Wehrmacht earned the reputation as being one of the mightiest armed forces the world has ever seen. The effort that went into manning, arming, equipping, and training a force that grew in size to over twelve million men between 1935 and 1945 was truly colossal, and with men such as Albert Speer in charge of the war effort, nothing seemed to have been left to chance.

Overlooked by modern historians, though no less vital to the early successes of the Third Reich, was the mundane challenge of feeding such a huge number of men. Whether eating in home garrison mess halls or lining up at a remote Gulasch-Kanone (field kitchen) somewhere in Russia, Italy, France, the Balkans or North Africa, German troops had to be fed three times a day. Not only fed, but well fed, with proper attention paid to food preparation and preservation, vitamins and nutrients, and last but not least, palatability. This topic, at best, has been only tangentially covered in the historiography of the war and has long been begging for the attention it deserves. With the publication of LTC (retired) Jim Poole's book, Wehrmacht Rations of WWII (Schiffer Military Publishing, Atglen, PA 2010), that gap has now been filled by what will become the standard reference work on the subject.

Not merely a survey on how the Wehrmacht fed its men, Poole's book also focuses on what they were fed and how much of it they entitled to in their daily ration. In addition to describing these mundane matters, the author brilliantly expounds upon the individual components of the ration, using a little-known US Army scientific study performed immediately after the war using captured German rations. This study, carried out by the US Army's Food Container Institute in 1947, evaluated over 100 items in the German ration, from bread products, to meats, candies and even coffee and tea, including the much-lamented Ersatz coffee, produced from a mixture of chicory and other foul coffee "replacement" materials. Just as important as the food items themselves were the methods and materials used to package and preserve them, including various types of tin cans, cardboard, cellophane, glass and wooden containers. A collector of these packaging materials, Poole scoured the attics and antique shops of Europe and has included hundreds of photographs of the actual items, gleaned from both his collection as well as from those of dozens of his fellow collectors.

Rounding out this truly groundbreaking book is a detailed and surprising coverage of other exotic German military food items, such as arctic survival rations, special rations for tank crews and paratroops, alcoholic beverage containers, and even the Wehrmacht's famous high-energy chocolate candy, Scho-Ko-Kola. Next to the German Luger pistol and the Iron Cross, this chocolate, packed in a trademark cylindrical can, was one of the most prized items favored by G.I. souvenir hunters. Poole leaves nothing to chance, providing intriguing details and facts about virtually every item in the German ration. Though German troops may have longed for cast-off G.I. "K" and "C" Rations by the end of the conflict, for most of the war they were surprisingly (and rather ingeniously) well-fed, enabling Hitler to keep his men nourished and in fighting trim until the German supply system totally collapsed during the last weeks of the war. Overall, a fascinating work - every serious student of military history should ensure that a copy of this book finds its way to his bookshelf!

Excellent book..... 10. September 2010
Von Richard J. Prandoni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Jim Pool & Tom Bock have created a masterpiece on a subject that has been long neglected. This book isn't just eye candy either although its loaded with great, detailed photo's of numerous catagories of German food and ration related items as well as rare, never before seen period photo's of the items in use. The amount of backround information presented in the text is mind blowing. While geared to the militaria collector, I have to believe that there's enough information presented to hold the interest of anyone interested in the origins of some of todays most popular food produsts. Opinions of the author's regarding the authenticity of certain items are expressed in a clear, non-confrontational manner and where recreations of rare or extinct items are used, it is so noted.
I would reccomend this book highly to anyone interested in the details of the era. There is no comparable work currently available on the subject to rival this and unless its written by these gentlemen, there probably won't be!!

Holy owned and operated! 10. Mai 2011
Von Mattski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Easily one of the finest tomes ever written on the subject! This is an exhaustive evaluation of military rations, can markings, civilian packaging, civilian packaging labeled for Wehrmacht use, there's even a whole chapter dedicated to Scho-Ka-Kola (caffeinated chocolate) which is still available today. If you are even mildly interested in German rations, the German rationing system, or the appearance of those rations for reenacting, living history, museums, or motion pictures, you owe it to yourself to have this book in your library!

Great Resource! 12. April 2011
Von Michael F. Brookman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I study German military history at the infantry man's level. This book gave pretty good information, great examples and good photography. I gave it 5 stars because it is the first book I've come across solely on this topic and it is a good universal sampling.

An excellent book. If you are interested in more than just the battle, get and study this book. I have volumes one and two and am very pleased with both. Hardback, detailed photos on gloss paper, excellent tables, charts and photographs.
