9781472814241: World War II US Army Combat Equipments
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Discover what equipment a GI carried with him during World War II: what he had strapped around his body, what it contained, and what those items were used for. In this highly illustrated book Special Forces veteran Gordon Rottman offers a truly comprehensive treatment of US World War II gear, covering not only basic belts, pouches and packs, but also mess gear, first aid gear, tools, bivouac/camping gear - essentially everything that a GI has to keep him alive and operational on the battlefield. Illustrated with wartime photos, new photos of kit from private collections and color plates showing both laid-out kit and half-figures of soldiers wearing the gear, this is set to become the primary equipment information resource for anyone interested in the kit and webbing used by US forces from D-Day to Berlin.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Gordon L. Rottman entered the US Army in 1967, volunteered for Special Forces and completed training as a weapons specialist. He served in the 5th Special Forces Group in Vietnam in 1969-70 and subsequently in airborne infantry, long-range patrol and intelligence assignments until retiring after 26 years. He was a Special Operations Forces scenario writer at the Joint Readiness Training Center for 12 years and is now a freelance writer, living in Texas.

Description du livre Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. État : New. Adam Hook (illustrateur). 248 x 184 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A soldier s web gear is as important to his ability to live and fight on the battlefield as are his clothing and weapons. In World War II the US Army issued equipment items that had originated in 1910, though modified and augmented in the 1920s and 1930s, and again during the war itself as a result of combat experience. This book describes and illustrates the great majority of the personal equipment provided for infantry riflemen, GIs armed with other weapons and their ammunition-bearers, officers, and medics. In addition to the web gear itself it covers canteens, mess kit, and first aid items; weapons-related and other specialist items; the long struggle to produce a practical backpack; bivouac and shelter gear, and the most commonly carried tools. The text also explains the basics of materials, colors, markings, nomenclature, and weights for the guidance of collectors. It is illustrated with wartime photos and color close-ups, and the wide-ranging color plates specially prepared for this book offer more than 130 images. N° de réf. du libraire AA79781472814241
