U.S. Army Barbed Wire Install


Recommended Posts

Is there a WWII eraTM or other manual that shows how to install defensive barbed wire fence? I'm setting up a display at our museum and while I did visit a training range in the DTC that had some installed, I didn't take measurements at the time. The drawing is from a British book on defenses and the DTC setup seems to be the same as the drawing. I'm sure there had to be different layouts for different situations.

The US Army's FM 5-34, Engineer Field Data, manual has the information you seek.  It has the various types of barbed-wire or barbed-tape that are used.  This manual can be found on Ebay.
