Click to Enlarge442 pages. 383 photos/drawings. This is a compilation of three manuals issued during the Great War on the subject of Field Fortifications; The French, German & American. All are in English. Part 1 : NOTES ON FIELD FORTIFICATIONS - The French Manual, shows that the French concentrated primarily on large earthern redoubts which accompanied their highly aggresive tactical doctrine.( this has 274 pages with hundreds of line drawings & plans ). Part 2 : THE CONSTRUCTION OF FIELD POSITIONS ( STELLINGSBAU ). Issued by the German Army in 1916. This manual shows the German penchant for fixed, permanent defenses, using concrete rather than earthen works. ( this has 68 pages and numerous line drawings & plans). Part 3 : NOTES ON THE CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT OF TRENCHES, April 1917, as issued by the U.S. War Dept. This shows that the Americans favored relatively light, hasty defences, which fitted their aggresive philsophy of attack. (this has 104 pp with many line drgs).
