Tales of the Gun - German small arms of WW2

Documentary about the German small arms of the second world war. For example, starting with the Luger and how it almost was the service pistol of the U.S. Army. It also looks at the development of other weapons such as the Mauser Gewehr 98 , the MP38/40 (machine gun ) , the MG34 (machine gun ) and the somewhat lesser known weapons like the Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 .

Nice to this documentary is that they go about the theory behind how they were used in military units , and how they were used effectively . So for example, caused the experience of the first world war is that an infantry unit was built around the machine . An infantry unit consisted of 10 men around a MG34 .
