Re: Help arming 28mm Volkssturm, RAD etc

Carl, I've done a lot of research into the Volkssturm. It was under Nazi Party control for training and equipment and so uniforms and equipment depended very much upon the degree of efficiency or lack of same of the Kreisleiters and Gauleiters.

Alan,
What sort of printer does your son use?
Grant
He says:
