True best art for Remarque book. You can make a book with these illustrations.

I went to a militaria exhibit last year and I was very impressed to see that they had a Mauser anti-tank rifle in pristine condition. Wouldn't give it to me for free, the selfish so-and-so's....

Lovely to see someone finally draw the Stosstruppen so well.

I absolutely love your drawings! Your attention to historical detail is amazing.  It was really great to view the paintings of each year, 1914 through 1918, and the steady progression of the German soldier's look. I've always been interested in WW1, and I'm sure you are too. You even got the M18 helmet down pat! Simply amazing work. Keep it up!

Body Armour, camo on helmets, assault troops...if this all happened in 1914 the war would be better.

Less casualties. Battles could be won quicker.
