Publishers Description: The remarkable war effort of the German armed forces on three fronts between 1939 and 1945 was recognised by a wider range of insignia than seen in the Allied armies. While the Wehrmacht displayed fewer unit insignia than the Allies, a glance at a German soldier's tunic could reveal much more about his actual combat experience.

Re: Book feedback
I'm not familiar with this particular book but all the Men at Arms series are good, basic reference books. Nothing in depth but good to pick up and flick through. You can pick them up for less than £5 on Amazon so you can't really go wrong.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
