This book presents the german ersatz bayonets used during the first world war whose diversity of the models still bring today an attraction for the collectors and an endless field or researches. In these 256 pages more than 300 bayonets and their accessories, scabbards, troddeln and faustrimen, will be displayed illustrated by more than 800 color photos and more than 200 period photos most of them having never been published before. These weapons are mostly war trophies brought back by the soldiers during leaves or found and picked up on the field. Forgotten in attics or ceilings, worn by the time, abandoned and left to the rust, these pieces are the witnesses of these terrible times. Almost one century flied. These now quite harmless bayonets definitely entered in history. This book is also a way to pay homage to the combatants from all countries felt on the battlefields.
