This new photo album, one of first in the MMP/Stratus "Camera On" series, contains 180+ photos of the horse-drawn elements of the German ground forces.

Despite the several hundred thousand motor vehicles used by German forces in World War Two, the German armed forces were still extremely reliant upon the horse.

Horse-drawn transportation was especially important for Germany, as it was lacking in its own natural oil resources. Both the German infantry and artillery relied heavily upon horse drawn elements, especially in their supply chain and logistics.  Each German unit employed thousands of horses and thousands of men taking care of them.

During the war, many custom-built horse drawn wagons as well as captured units were included in the general transportation of the Wehrmacht.

 

These profusely illustrated photo albums include many previously unseen pictures, many from private sources in Germany.  Whatever the rules might have said, German soldiers took many photos, and these are the basis for our new series.
