This is a very good used example of the 5-3/4 x 8-inch, 36 page illustrated softcover Weapon Booklet of the Army called Die Pioniere (The Combat Engineers) published by the Oberkommando des Heeres, probably in late 1942 or early 1943 (it is undated).
This practical promotional booklet for future Wehrmacht soldiers starts with a foreword by Oberbefehlhaber des Heeres, Generalfeldmarschall Walther von Brauschitch about the dream of every German boy to become a soldier and serve the Führer und Vaterland. This Waffenhefte des Heeres was one of a series of similar booklets published to show future soldiers how many possibilities there were in the various arms of the Wehrmacht.
There is background information about what Pioniere or combat engineers do in the Wehrmacht and lots of photos of Pioniere in action as part of the Gebirgsjaeger in Norway, bridge construction during the Nazi invasion of the West in 1940, preparing explosives during combat, using flamethrowers on enemy bunkers, etc.
Advancement possibilities for combat engineers are explained as well. On the back cover there is a color illustration of a Pioniere Standarte and a Standard for Motorized Pioniere.
Complete and in very good used condition.
