Book Description

5 Nov 2009 Europa Militaria (Book 35)
Since the end of World War Two and the increasing threat of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare during the Cold War, equipment designers have focused on building NBC protection and decontamination into the British soldier's webbing equipment. The capabilities of 1958-pattern webbing were known to be very poor, yet it was not until the exposure of its shortcomings during the Falklands War of 1982 that a suitable nylon-based load-carrying equipment was developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern British Webbing Equipment 10 Feb 2012
Have found the book very usefull to the understanding in the history and development of post war British webbing. In fact the only book I have found. Very simple and clear layout with excelent photograps. Only wish it could have been a more in depth insight, but for the money excelent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agree with comments below but... 11 Nov 2010
By Paul
I am a 'collector', and I would have thought that this is the market 'Europa Militaria' titles are aimed at. Great to see that PLCE finally gets coverage as being 'collectable' - it is 20 years since it was first issued - as I wasn't aware that anyone else actually collected it (i thought that PLCE sold on ebay was bought buy cadets and airsofters)!! It is interesting to see the early trials kit and its evolution. This book should be bought with the previous volume 'British Post-War Jungle Webbing' if you're interested in '58 webbing (think that book included '58 webbing as the publishers assumed there was a market mainly for a book about 'Jungle' equipment and added that as filler).

2.0 out of 5 stars Two, maybe two-point-five stars 20 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book should've been called a COLLECTOR'S GUIDE to Modern British Webbing Equipment. This book is only about collection equipment. You honestly only get a paragraph, maybe two, of history of each type of webbing then it's "This is an ammunition pouch...this is a utility pouch"

The author doesn't explain what the layout of the webbing was for or what the individual pouches and kit do. For example, the P1958 webbing is discribed as having "kidney-pouches" ...what the hell are they for? I personaly do know, but it would be nice if a book about webbing actually explained what it is for, and not just listing the individual names of the pieces.

The author come very close to actually making an apology for having to include firearms in his book of webbing, and all picture of ammunition is listed as "inert rounds"! As if to say "Oh, we have nothing to do with those ruffian shooter types, we just like belts and pouches"

If you're thinking of buying this book to learn something about webbing then I'd give it a miss and but Osprey's British Infantry Equipment (2) 1908-2000
