    Can anyone recommend some decent books that will cover the early war (or some good online sources for that period)?

    Depends what you mean ‘wireless use’ and whose.

    I’d have a look at Royal sigs org
    You may have to join to a yahoo group to get access to some of the pamphlets – there are books to buy – print on demand –wireless books

    Its a start.
    artyis pretty good as a starter for artillery nets and sets (not much specifically on early war)
    If you want to buy/library loan books – ‘British Army Communications in the Second World War: Lifting the Fog of Battle
    By Simon Godfrey’ is a pretty comprehensive book on signals work but only a small part is relevant to what you want and may be a bit specialist.

    Sorry all these are British

    Jentz’s Panzertruppen Volume 1 has some fairly extensive notes on the use of wireless in the first half of the war by the Panzerwaffe.

    Interestingly, I’m just reading the 1944 manual “The Infantry Battalion” and in section on comes it stresses that wireless should only be used if no other alternatives exist.

    Rather fortuitously, the Wireless for the Warrior books have dropped in price in the last couple of days. Compendium 3 which covers France, Belgium and Great Britain (and the US) just dropped several quid
