WW2 Manuals – Downloadable

I’ve put together well over 100 WW2 manuals on this page, British, American and German.

Over the years I’ve been collecting WW2 relics, I have needed to identify some unusual stuff, and these manuals have proved an invaluable resource. I won’t take up your time with lots of words here, so please just scroll through the PDF files I’ve uploaded and use whatever you need.

There are quite a few here (!!!) and some of the descriptions are a bit vague, but rest assured there are some real gems in among this lot. Some are really good quality, others not so much…….but something is better than nothing. Enjoy!

(Excuse the pic below. If I don’t upload a pic the blog shows as a PDF icon, which is really terrible!)
