Davies is able to succinctly cover Divisional organization, weapons, and tactics in one, 176 page, volume. While not going into any great depth, the information, such as German chart and tactical symbols (also used on vehicles), and their meaning, are an important rare find

Beach has written what will come to be seen as the definitive work on the BEF's intelligence system. The second part discusses how the intelligence product influenced operational decisions, and particularly Haig, during 1916 to 1918. Pitched primarily at strategic intelligence, what emerges is the focus on German morale, both on the home front and in the German Army, the losses they sustained, and the means by which they were calculated, including captured paybooks.

German Army Handbook 1939–1945, by W. J. K. Davies, is a small book covering the organization, equipment, and doctrine of the German Heer (and incidentally the Waffen-SS) during World War II. Though brief, it includes a thorough collection of tables, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs, and is useful as a concise introduction to the nature of the Wehrmacht's ground forces of the period.

Compiled by British Intelligence, for restricted official issue by the General Staff, German Army Handbook of April 1918, is a comprehensive assessment of the German Army during the latter stages of the First World War. Illustrated throughout with plates, diagrams, charts, tables and maps, it provides a detailed breakdown of the army, covering all aspects from recruiting and training, mobilization, command and organization, weapons and signals to transportation, medical and veterinary services, and uniform. The German Army Handbook of 1918 was a remarkable achievement. It provides solutions to many questions that histories of the First World War and accounts of its battles are unable to answer. It shows how the static conventions of trench warfare usurped the traditional role of cavalry, and how the German Army were able to take advantage of the dominance of the machine-gun on the Western Front in 1915. There are also two maps, showing Army Corps Districts, and Zones of Administration and Lines of Command in June 1917. The events of 1914 transformed the armies of Europe, and made much of the information contained in the amended 1912 handbook worthless. The emergence of trench warfare created conditions in which the traditional concepts of offense and defense had little meaning. Within a few months battle conditions had created a situation in which pre-war intelligence publications had only little relevance.
  • An exact reproduction of a 1918 British Intelligence publication plus a fairly good introduction. The pictures are copied from 1918 era quality, but are pretty poor copies even at that.........tend to look xeroxed. No coverage what-so-ever of tactics. Did, however provide me with information I had never before encountered. I'm glad to have this one.

  • Based on an intelligence product compiled by the British during WWI this book provides some very good information into how the Imperial Army operated, including its general staff and its reserve components. I found it invaluable for understanding certain German terms used for organizations and it also includes charts which reference the huge expansion of the German Army during the war. The only weakness is that this is a "snapshot" of the German Army from 1917 and does not entirely reflect the front-line forces prior to the Armistice. Very useful if you are studying the First World War.

  • It is an excellent tool to understand the final stage of the Great War.

  • very informative
