please scroll down to find a tiny window with all the seperate chaperts, then in case you use chrome you could select print and then use the option save as pdf – by that you can create for your own use a very nice reference for the Austrian Army of that time.

That is a great resource.

Even if one's French is not much beyond schoolboy standard, the content is superb. Well illustrated and note colour pics at the end of each volume. The 1940-5 issue is great showing some of the contributors in an Oflag and covering the Liberation of Parris and FFI
