A good choice is (also in german)

"Das Firewall Buch". written by Wolfgang Barth, published by SuSE Press.

The book has a longer theory part and describe later the mechanism of
iptables (only that, not the older kernel implementations like ipchains...).
Very well are 2 chapters with example implementations of a standalone host,
and a network with masquerading and DMZ.

really very good. you can customize the examples very quickly for your own
