I ordered East and West years ago. The pieces I got were cheap. All the infantry was the german infantry. All of the units were from the original Axis and Allies mold.
I also ordered East & West some years ago, and the pieces I got were identical to the ones used by Xeno Games in its various WWII games. Xeno's pieces are low-budget versions of the sculpts which came with the Milton Bradley A&A edition, except for the infantry pieces which, as GoSanchez mentions, are low-budget clones of the German troop sculpts exclusively.
