See Elite 124, World War II Infantry Anti-Tank Tactics. A British patrol moves briskly across an open space in a wrecked Italian town abandoned by the Germans. Such patrols became routine as the Allies pursued the withdrawing enemy, and it took concentration not to relax security. These soldiers have dumped their web equipment but have plenty of firepower: the patrol leader, with a Thompson SMG, is followed by a rifleman, another Tommygunner, and an LMG team with a Bren and a rifle

This work is another in the series dedicated to WWII infantry combat by Osprey. These books explain the 'nuts and bolts' of infantry combat using a 'How and with What' approach that makes clearer what is read in WWII history is accomplished for those of us fortunate enough to be reading it sitting is a comfortable chair!

World War II Battlefield Communications is a much needed look in to how units communicated with each other under operational conditions. It looks at American, Commonwealth, Russian, German and Japanese equipment and operational practice individually after casting light on the basics of visual, wire and wireless communication common to all. The illustrations and pictures are well placed in the narrative to increase the subject comprehension like all the previous books in this series.

For me, this gave me some idea on how various battles I have read about were affected by communication or lack thereof. This subject has long needed to be addressed in a fairly brief, clear and concise matter and this book goes a long way to filling in this gap. My only complaint would be is that it could be more in depth but this is not the purpose of these books!

I highly recommend this to anyone curious about this aspect of WWII infantry combat!

I refer to most Osprey books as "history light", or Cliff's Notes on Real Stuff, but this book surprised me with the depth of knowledge, well-ordered presentation and great illustrations. I consider myself a pretty-well-read history buff, at 71, but I learned a lot from this book Thank you Mr. Rottman!

This short book is a general overview of telephone and radio communications used by all major combatants during the war. As a result, there isn't a lot of detailed information on the equipment and procedures of each combatant. Someone could probably write a decent sized book just on German field telephone communications alone.

Excellent book by Mr. Rottman. His OSPREY books are of the highest caliber. For those of us used to cell phones it is often difficult to realize just how primitive radio communications was sixty years ago. Gordon Rottman expertly discusses both the equipment, its issue and use, shortcomings and strengths in this volume. A must read for skirmish WW2 gamers.

HAVING BEEN IN COMMUNICATIONS MYSELF, I NOW HAVE A GREATER APPRECIATION OF THE "PRIMATIVE" WWII EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE TO MY DAD AS A UNIT COMMANDER

As an amateur radio operator, I frequently find and get to work with and restore old battlefield communications equipment from the WW II era. It is interesting to read about how this equipment was actually used in battle. A great read for anyone interested in this type of gear.

This is the worst publication on the subject I have "read". Certainly not worth the paper upon which it is printed.
Don't buy if you want accurate, complete information.
Any review of this book would have to start out by stating that it is relatively short, at about 65 pages (a third of which consist of photographs, color plates and other types of illustrations). Despite this short length, however, it provides a very good overview of tactical battlefield communications systems used during the Second World War at the regiment and brigade level and below. It covers these communication systems for the US, Britain, Soviet Union, Germany and Japan. The systems covered include (not necessarily in order of importance) field telephones, radios, visual signals (such as flares, smoke, flags, marker panels, signal lights and arm and hand signals), messengers and audible signals. Not only are very detailed technical details regarding each of these (i.e., frequencies radios operated on, weight, etc.), but there is a good discussion of how, tactically, they were used as well as their strengths and weaknesses (per and relative to each other). In addition, there are very good photographs and color plates and illustrations that would prove of some value (or at least a decent starting point) for the figurine and diorama builder.

Not only is this provided but signal units are discussed as well as distribution of these systems by unit type (i.e., at the platoon, squad, etc. levels). The procedures used for each are also discussed. Last but not least many tidbits of information are provided that would be of interest to WWII aficionados. For example, the Soviet Union had little communication equipment and most of what it did have was of foreign manufacture, radio communications during the period were quite rudimentary relative to what they are today (to say the least) and telephones were the most preferred (and most reliable) form of communication, despite their many drawbacks.

In short, the reader receives quite an education regarding the physical characteristics of these systems, their tactical use, the organizational structure they were used under and the procedures required for their use. A very good survey for those interested in an overview of the subject. On the negative side the book is a bit dry, due to its technical nature, but how can a book on this subject not be?
