Second edition, March, 2002. Originally published in 1993.
An essential reference work for the collector and historian alike, this book traces the evolution of both clothing and equipment as the quartermasters met the challenge of changing demands and attitudes, from the first years of the century through two world wars. The First World War altered the US Army dramatically, turning it into a large modern fighting force, with all the consequent demands for mass-produced uniforms and equipment. By the time the US entered the Second World War, American technology, innovation and manufacturing industry had combined to make the American forces the best equipped in the world. The vast range of items with which the Americans went to war is fully reflected in the text and illustrations of this encyclopedic volume.
Contains over 860 black-and-white photographs and other illustrations, plus 325 shoulder-sleeve insignia in full colour.
Includes Glossary and Index.
