Abstract:

This book is an illustrated collection of 260 of the most interesting and distinctive uniforms worn by troops on land and sea, and in the air, in mankind's greatest war. The many different varieties of badges and rank insignia of each national army are also shown and described in detail. Grouped together by country, each entry is illustrated with a large, full color artwork which shows the uniform to maximum effect. Each artwork is accompanied by a description of what the figure is wearing and why, and the typical weapons and any other equipment he would have carried. Each entry has a specifications box which gives the date, unit, rank, theater, and exact location of the uniform illustrated. Many of the artworks are based on famous individuals who fought in the war, and any interesting and 'personal' adaptations to the uniforms are shown. Both the artworks and the text have been carefully researched, making this book a unique and fascinating collection of the military clothing worn by the armies, navies, and air forces of the world between 1939 and 1945.
