Item description for USMC Uniforms & Equipment 1941-1945 by Bruno Alberti, Laurent Pradier, Lawrence Brown, Philippe Charbonnier, Glasshouse Graphics , William Link & Sylvia Yount...

Bruno Alberti and Laurent Pradier have been collecting and writing about U S Marine Corps gear for more than a decade and, in that time, have contributed complete series of articles on the topic in the French Militaria Magazine. That sequence of articles is complete and the time has now come for a revised and expanded version of the results of their work as a single bound volume.

The US Marine Corps has always enjoyed a special status among the American Armed Forces, as well as boasting distinctive uniforms and emblems.

This new book presents the large variety of dress uniforms for both officers and enlisted men, as well as combat uniforms and specialty camouflage garments.

Hundreds of items of clothing, equipment and insignia are illustrated by reenactment photos of the famous 'leathernecks' in the form of large format color plates. Many period photos found in official American archives are also reproduced and help place the reenactment shots in the correct historical context.

This new volume maintains the usual exceptional quality standards of Histoire and Collections: carefully-researched historical background, hundreds of concisely captioned color photographs of authentic artifacts and reenactment photographs taken in studio conditions to allow the reader to see the uniforms and equipment in the greatest clarity.

Reviews - What do customers think about USMC Uniforms & Equipment 1941-1945?

A great uniform reference book  Nov 28, 2007
Another great uniform reference book by Historie & Collections at a reasonable price. Large format, quality glossy paper with sharp clear photos, all English text. Has original B&W period photos along with hundreds of modern color photos of officer/enlisted dress/combat uniforms, headgear, weapons, fieldgear and insignia. Many of the photos are full page models wearing original uniforms. Did you know there were 3 classes (A,B,C) of the enlisted Dress Blue uniform or when camouflaged utilities/helmet covers were introduced? I didn't. Includes large interesting sections on Women Marines and Navy Corpsmen and smaller sections on the SeaBees and Marine occupation forces in China 1945-46. This book must surely have color photos of everything a Marine wore or carried from the beginning to the end of WWII. I really can't praise this quality book enough. Every time I open it I learn something new. It is a must have.
USMC H&C  Oct 16, 2007
As I have come to expect, another first class effort from Histoire & Collections. While I can't describe this book as all-encompassing, or totally comprehensive, I believe it provides an oustanding, well illustrated overview of the subject. Apart from numerous, well reproduced period photos, virtually all the many illustrations are in color. The original uniforms, photographed on current live models, are especially good. Full dress , as well as combat uniforms are covered in detail, along with a good chapter on female Marines, and shorter chapters on Navy corpsmen, and Seabees, both assigned to Marine units.
In my opinion, this publisher can be counted upon to offer truly valuable military titles, covering many countries, for a very fair price.
Also, for books that are almost always translated from the original French, there are few typos, in fact often fewer from books I have read that were published originally in English.
If you have any interest at all in the USMC of WWII, you should own this book.
