I am looking for info on the use of the German MG in indirect fire. Is there a chapter in this manual?? Thank you!

Unterrichtsbuch für die Maschinengewehr-Kompagnien, Gerät 08. Mit Genehmigung des Königlich Preußischen Kriegsministeriums vom 9.9.1907. 21. Aufl.
Merkatz, Friedrich von. And/or later manuals of course!
