All are in English. Part 1 : NOTES ON FIELD FORTIFICATIONS - The French Manual, shows that the French concentrated primarily on large earthern redoubts which accompanied their highly aggresive tactical doctrine.( this has 274 pages with hundreds of line drawings & plans ). Part 2 : THE CONSTRUCTION OF FIELD POSITIONS ( STELLINGSBAU ). Issued by the German Army in 1916. This manual shows the German penchant for fixed, permanent defenses, using concrete rather than earthen works. ( this has 68 pages and numerous line drawings & plans). Part 3 : NOTES ON THE CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT OF TRENCHES, April 1917, as issued by the U.S. War Dept.
