MP 40 – Role & “Tactics”

A look at the role of MP 40 (and its very similar “predecessor” the MP 38) in terms of role and tactics within the German Army in the Second World War. For this we look at German Army regulations, reports, tables of organization and equipment and also the weapons themselves. We look at the relation of the MP 40 submachine-gun to the Panzerwaffe, but also as its use by the infantry, particularly the squad leader, platoon leader and company commander.
