    A German 1898 manual for Infantry Officers, published by E.S. Mittler & Son, Berlin, includes: 1841 Dreyse, 1871 Mauser, 1871/84 Mauser, Gew. 88, and the 1883 Revolver. Ammunition for these arms is included, as is a table comparing the German rifles to those of France, Austria, Russia, Italy, Belgium, and Switzerland. The author is Dithey and the title of the 300+ page manual is "Einjahrige Der Infanterire "; illustrations are line drawings.
