Hello collectors!
 

If someone is looking for a good book about the U.S. M3 / M3A1 “Grease Gun”, Schiffer Publishing has now published my English language edition and it is now available.

I hope that it is ok to put this post here in the forum. Over the past years a lot of collectors have asked me if there might be a translation in the future ... well, now here it is.

 

The book tells the complete story of this remarkable weapon, from its development via manufacturing through to its use in combat, with description of accessories, ammunition, experimental and foreign made models. The reader will find many hitherto unknown details, background information and numerous photos.

 

224 pages with 551 color and b/w photos

 

Size: 8 1/2" x 11" x 7/8"

 

ISBN13: 9780764360589

 

It is available now from Schiffer books (USA), Amazon or other booksellers.

 

Unfortunately it is NOT available from me, because I’m in Germany and I do not have any books here.

 

 

Ian from Forgotten Weapons has done a great book review:

With best wishes

My German is really rusty so I'm happy to see this edition. The Grease Gun has always been my favorite WWII-era weapon. Thanks for your efforts!

I have the original in German, as well as this new and expanded, English edition.  Well worth the price.
