German MG-08 crew and medics

The Maschinengewehr 08, or MG 08, was the German Army's standard machine gun in World War I and is an adaptation of Hiram S. Maxim's original 1884 Maxim gun. It was produced in a number of variants during the war. The MG 08 served during World War II as a heavy machine gun in many German infantry divisions, although by the end of the war it had mostly been relegated to second-rate fortress units. These German MG-08 crew and medics are produced by Elastolin and Schusso (Germany 30s).

A WW1 German field military hospital

The German military doctors treated from August 1914 to July 1918 approximately 27 million wounded and sick soldiers (official numbers from August-September 1918 on are incomplete). These include about 5,7 million wounded and 21,5 million sick. Of these, 94,5% returned to active duty, 1,7% died (400.000) and 3,8% did not return to active duty (900.000). My WW1 German field military hospital is represented by soldiers from Lineol, Elastolin, Schusso, Durso and Leyla made in 30s.

A German machine gun team with MG-08 at the Argonne Forest

This German machine gun team with MG-08 is advancing to positions through the Argonne Forest during WW1. The Argonne Forest was seized by the Germans at the early stages of the war. They had set up defensive positions throughout the forest, using a string of networked trenches. These defences started with a roughly 550-yard (500 m) deep front line which "served as not much more than an advanced warning system".The mounted officer is produced by Schusso (in 30s). The machine gun team is provided by Elastolin and Lineol
