book Ground Power Magazine #66 11/1999
Published by Delta Publishing Co.Ltd. Japan
All text is in Japanese, with English added for the main titles. The pictures though speak for themselves.

The three main features in the magazine follow on from Ground Power #65

This issue covers German Anti-Aircraft vehicles (wheeled and tracked) of WWII, as opposed to the dedicated Flakpanzers in GP65.
Chapter 1 covers the early machine gun mounts fitted to various vehicles, followed with coverage of the numerous wheeled vehicle mounts for the Flak 30 and 38, most notably the Horch and Krupp Protze.
Chapter 2 looks at the half-track vehicles. The Sd.Kfz.10/4 & 10/5, Sd.Kfz.7/1, Sd.Kfz 6/2, sWS 3.7cm and Sd.Kfz.7/2 are all covered in detail with excellent photographs from all theatres of operation.

Following this is part 2 of the "Jimmy Manual", namely the 2 Ton 6x6 GMC Truck CCKW 353/352.
Again there are many really good line drawings of various components of the GMC.
Covered here are the various Cab and body (trays) used, the gun mounts and winches. The drawings are exceptionally clear and show all the detail on these parts. These are accompanied by many good wartime photos on the 'Jimmy'. A must for any GMC fan.

The final section is Part 5 of the German Army Uniforms series. Many photos with line drawings of person equipment carried by the troops.

Highly recommended references.
