Ten years after the first book was published, this is a completely revised edition detailing the Imperial German S14 bayonet models, including the S14 type I and type II models (also known as the “Gottscho” and “S15” bayonet). Thirty extra pages have been added and now offered in hard-back.
Providing the most authoritative account of the S14 bayonet in any language, the book covers all aspects of these bayonets from their construction and inspection in 1915 through to their use in the field throughout WW1. Individual sections document the history of each of the eight companies making S14 type I bayonets and the twelve letter codes found on S14 type II bayonets. Information has also been brought together for the first time on all of the rare post-manufacture modifications of the S14 bayonets.
