Another wonderful Schiffer title
, 12 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Gulaschkanone (Hardcover)
Having bought the Schiffer title on German Rations of the Wehrmacht in World War II recently, I've been delving deeply in the products available for creating meals for the German soldier in WW2. And just then this title comes along, with a focus on the Field Kitchen in action. I just had to have it.
Decades ago one of my most favorite model kits was the 1:35th scale field kitchen made by Tamiya. Ever since this piece of equipment has fascinated me, even so much so that a couple of years ago I've bought a model in 1:6th scale. This book now only reinforces that fascination. It gives a good explanation of how the kitchen is built up (e.i. what all the different compartments are for), but it also explains how it was used. This even goes so far as to include recipies!
To bring the information accross a lot of colour photo's are shown, where re-enactors pose around the kitchen. This is a very good thing, as a picture can explain a lot more than words.
I feel that the approach that's taken here is really of interest to afficionado's like myself. It's given me a good insight into how the kitchen was used, and has inspired me to have a closer look at my models.
And I think that with all the colour photographs included, this book nicely complements the book about German Rations.
By now you get the picture, I guess, and that's that I really like this book. I hope you do too.
