Wehrmacht Hand Grenade Protection Screen - 1943

Post by Richard Stone » 21 Sep 2022 16:12

The attached short article discusses the use of a portable protection screen to protect Wehrmacht soldiers on the Orel section of the Eastern Front from Russian hand grenades while allowing them to return fire using their weapons. The cover was apparently designed and built locally sometime in 1943.

This article is a translation of a German press article that was printed in the late 1943 time period. The translated article was printed in the February 1944 edition of the USA professional military reference magazine ‘Military Review’.
