This is an excellent example of the 1943 63rd edition of Oertzenscher Taschenkalender für die Offiziere des Heeres (Encyclopedic Portable Calendar for Officers of the Army) by Obertsleutnant E.-J. Graf von Westarp as published by Verlag Alfred Waberg in Grimmen, Pommern, Germany.
The fat little book measures about 4-5/8 x 6 x 2 inches thick, contains over 1000 pages not including the 8 full-color pages of Nazi uniforms, flags, pennants, insignia, etc.

This is far and away the best guidebook for anyone who is serving as an Officer in the Wehrmacht of Third Reich Germany, or anyone who wishes to know anything about service in the Armed Forces of Adolf Hitler. The Nazi eagle and swastika on the front cover leaves no doubt about the contents.

There are comprehensive chapters on every possible question any Nazi military officer could have, such as: Organization of the German Armed Forces, Army Archives, Army Library, the Military Draft, Military Obligation, Volunteers, Training, the Various Branches of the Service, Guard Duty, Discipline, Pay, Uniforms and Clothing, Weapons, Travel, Transport, Medical, Comradeship among Officers, Feldpost, Telephone, Insurance, Taxes, etc. Lots of information regarding the relationship between the military, the police and the SS.

A very important book for anyone concerned with any aspect of the German Armed Forces during World War II. Spine binding worn through in two spots on the edges but overall the book is in very nice condition.
