As a collector of mainly WWII (US) equipment, this book straightened out quite a few question marks that I had.Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
The equipment of the US Army 1910 to 1967, all in a compact volume. The M1910, M1928, M1936, M1944, M1945, M1956, M1967 variants are all covered in quite some detail. also covers a wealth of related equipment. No other volume provides this amount of information. An excellent resource with excellent photographs and an informative text. It should be on every collectors bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
This is an invaluable book (I own all four of the Europa webbing books and they are all of the same excellent quality) - I only hope the author will pick up where he left off and will write a book about post-1967 US web equipment (LINCLOE, ALICE, load-bearing vest etc).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book, with good detail, and lots of well captioned photos. It mainly focuses on WW1 and WW2 with the Vietnam items dealt with quite briefly at the end. The one thing I would point out is that it does not deal with US Marine Corps webbing at all. The book only looks at US Army webbing used between 1910-1967.

Useful for painting soldiers 30 May 2007
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I cast and paint metal toy soldiers. This book was very useful for showing various equipment configurations and also various colours used. Often when painting figures, one can get caught up in striving to get the colour "historically accurate." Sometimes it can become an obsession. This book shows, without intending to, that fabrics can, and do, fade and that colours can often be at artist discretion. Also, since so much US gear is produced from multiple factories and with different dye lots, it helps to see other colour possibilities.
The photographs are wonderful and most are in colour. There are several b/w photos which are used to show equipment in historical context. The text can be a bit dry at times but I bought it for the photos and identification of what can sometimes be frustratingly difficult to identify pieces of equipment.

average REFERENCE BOOK FOR THE PRICE 13 Oct. 2009
By Don Kochi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
you get what you pay for. if you are seeking a further in-depth reference book on US MILITARY FIELD GEAR...then be prepared to lay out the bucks for the usual hardbound thick coffee-table format type reference book loaded with several all color photos which average $50-$95. this softcover primer from EUROPA MILITARIA publications is a basic layman's quick reference handy guide. for the experienced collector....something with more meat is required to sink your 782 collecting teeth into. for the novice collector, it is a low cost reference book not requiring too much space on your library shelf. for me, who has plenty of the more expensive reference books....a simple question such as WHEN DID US MILITARY FIELD GEAR FIRST START TO INCORPORATE VELCRO (as a fastener) BEGIN? cannot be conclusively answered by this or any of the reference books to my satisfaction.

A good introduction. 29 Nov. 2007
By warlord - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have always been interested in militaria, and I wanted to know just how varied "uniform" equipment actually was back then. This book that is a good start for anyone interested in this topic. It's laid out in simple, straightforward, and comprehensive fashion. I am sure there are more detailed works out there, but as an introduction, this book fills the bill nicely.

Good book on US equipment 2 Jun. 2008
By RipperBravo6 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
American Web Equipment: 1910-1967 is a good, but not excellent reference book detailing US issue field gear from pre- WWI to the Vietnam era. Although the book does not go into depth in it's description of each item, or include much information on manufacturers marks, it does well in discussing the development of web gear in general and the US issued items specifically. Lots of good pictures make this a reference edition that a true collector should not be without and a good starting point for an in depth look at issued gear.
