Sportvorschrift für die Kreigsmarine

I. Teil (Erprobungsentwurf) Kriegsausagbe

O.K.M. 5791 M. Wehr. II f vom 10.6.1938

This is the Kriegsmarine replacement of the Sportvorschrift für die Wehrmacht, H.Dv. 475, M.Dv.Nr. 496. This first volume contains the essential sports education guidelines and topics for the training at the front. The second volume is the handbook for the sports trainers and officers on training. This temporal manual was to be replaced by a permanent manual early 1939 that would capture the learnings and improvements obtained. I have 2 versions of his manual in my collection: the right one is assigned as a Kriegsausgabe war version.

This particular manual was also used for phycological warfare by the British army, as camouflage for the malingering booklet Krankheit rettet. See the malinering webage for more details. The manual would appear to be a normal issue, but the middle part was substituted by the propaganda on malingering: pretending to be ill or causing an injury to yourself to prevent military service or other support to the German war effort.
