Hello,

I am researching German trench mortars (yes, strictly speaking they are not artillery) and am looking for a copy of this French Army manual - Ministère de la Guerre: Notes sur les engins de tranchées allemands, Septembre 1916.

Does anyone have it and is willing to share?

Regards,

Marc

With kind regards,

Maybe. But I have heard the "price" of assistance from him is high.

Perhaps it's worth asking on the French 14-18 forum?

https://forum.pages14-18.com/viewforum.php?f=4

It is possible to ask in English but I usually provide a machine translation in French as well.

I did check on the Gallica archive (gallica.bnf.fr) but the manual doesn't seem to be there - not that I trust the Gallica search engine...

Regards,

Charlie

Any particular reason why you want this manual?, the reason why I ask is its most likely the infomation in it would have been published by the US war department as they translated a lot of french stuff as you probably know, that said the only US manual I have come across that includes german trench morters is:

Manual for trench artillery, United States Army (provisional). Part I, trench artillery.

and I would be suprised if it didn't include the info from the french notes.

Ironsides - Thank for the link to the US manual. It looks good, but I think the French manual may have in-depth information about the equipment used with the German minenwerfers.

Druid Ian - I hope your effort on the British Ordnance Collectors Network pays off.

Regards,
Marc
