label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: At the end of World War I, the German military was forcibly dismantled by the Treaty of Versailles. Long-range and heavy artillery was destroyed and the largest artillery piece was limited to the 105mm Field Howitzer. After Hitler repudiated the Treaty of Versailles, Germany began rebuilding its heavy artillery capabilities, with the major focus was on the Luftwaffe and Panzer forces. As a result, the Germans entered WWII with an artillery capability slightly more advanced than it was in World War I. Frank Dahowski of Montague, Massachusetts, stands in front of one of the many German Field guns that were captured during WWII.
