How to identify this WW2 font?

I have tried online font matching in the usual places without success. Nothing comes even close, really (the G is rather peculiar). Is there anything else I can do? The text (cf. image) is taken from a handbook published in 1939.enter image description here

Any help much appreciated.


The typography of pre-WWII German printing is well documented by the Handbuch der Schriftarten and its supplements which has kindly been placed on the internet by the Klingspor. It’s in the 1931-1932 supplement: it’s Achtung by Ludwig & Mayer. There was a very similar question a few years back.
