The German infantry company of 1939 was very different from the one that would later march into France and the Low Countries. Infantry squads were bigger, and there were less machine guns available; and almost everything was horse-drawn rather than remotely motorised.

What has been interesting is seeing how my generic "early war German" collection has translated into a force for the Polish campaign...

The Company represents one of the many small forces tasked with keeping the Germans from the corridor through which the main bulk of the British Expeditionary Force is retreating towards Dunkirk. It has already seen action, suffering some casualties, and has picked up all sorts of odds and sods on the way.
