War Front at Home
The Book of German Armaments Workers

Following a full-page portrait of Reichsminister for Weapons Production and Munitions Dr. Fritz Todt in his Luftwaffe uniform, there is an introduction to the book by Todt.

The introduction is followed with great praise for German factory workers producing weapons and munitions of every kind, interspersed with excellent photographs taken in defense plants throughout Germany.

Among the items shown being made are huge shells for artillery and naval guns, gun barrels, U-Boats or submarines, aircraft and aircraft engines, mines, field guns, 88 mm guns, bombs, machine guns, etc.

There are pictures of Adolf Hitler and workers listening to Hitler, production inspecting officers, research workers, etc.

The book text explains the variety of weapons for the various branches of service and charts compare weapon data in considerable detail. This is easily the best book on the subject produced in Germany during the war.
