Sniper Variations completes this important author’s in-depth study of the German K98k rifle by concentrating on the telescope-sighted K98k, the specialist rifle of choice for most German snipers during World War II. Three different types of telescopes were mounted, on specially selected K98ks, first by designated Army Ordnance Supply Offices of the Heereszeugamter (H Za) and then by selected private contractors, using a variety of mounts. All are fully discussed and clearly depicted. As in Volume I of Backbone of the Wehrmacht, Sniper Variations is enriched by many rare, previously unpublished official documents and original photographs.
