Earlier editions omitted passages potentially embarrassing to our allies as well as a large number of drawings and sketch maps. The Army translation understandably suffered also from a hurried wartime effort. In preparing this edition J. R. Driscoll retranslated the original German work and revised hundreds of passages in the Army translation. Bob Heittman, working with the German wartime English editions, painstakingly revised the sketches and sketch maps. Where possible they were compared to large scale maps of the areas involved to resolve questions of detail and provide approximate scales.
