Opis produktu:

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.

"A solid pick for such [military history] collections... Gordon Rottman's "World War II US Armored Infantry Tactics, "telling of lessons applied between divisions when the nation entered the war and underestimated the ratio of mechanized infantry to tanks." -"The Bookwatch "(January 2010) "Author Gordon L. Rottman covers the organization of these units, the weapons and equipment they used as well as what tactics, theory and capabilities were developed as these units were used in combat. Then there was the understanding and exploitation of the strengths and weaknesses of these units and how they performed in action. Bolstered by a well done selection of period photographs and the superb artwork of Peter Dennis, it makes into an excellent book on the subject. One in which I learned a lot and can easily recommend to you." - Scott Van Aken, "Modeling Madness/modelingmadness.com "(November 2009)
